twisterchain - circular and spiral movements, snap-open along both sides

Circular movements with twisterchain - The twisterchain product range offers a vast selection for circular movements. twisterchain applications are available with guide trough, which has the following advantages: Guidance of the e-chain®, reduced abrasion of the e-chain®, optimum low-noise operation, rotation angle up to 360°. The modular structure of the guide trough enables the utilization of a longer chain length, various bending radii and several twists.

Turns possible up to 540° (with special mounting parts)

 

The modular structure of the guide trough enables the linking of a variety of radii of chains, circles and bends with always the same trough parts.

 

Opening - press down the screwdriver vertically in the groove of the crossbar. Loosen the crossbar by prizing (against the clamp)
