Selection table and design data for twisterchain guide troughs

New generation twisterchain guide troughs

Save installation time, costs - increase service life

With the twister trough type 01 the previously complicated adjustment work is clearly reduced from 6 hours to 2 hours. While reducing noise levels, travel speed can be increased, thanks to an almost all plastic design. Available for all twisterchain from the new and previous product range.

  • Suitable for high dynamics, due to upper run guided on full surface
  • Gentle and quiet operation in the trough due to continuous upper run guide
  • Top run is guided in the new plastic trough and supported across the whole width
  • Pre-assembled delivery possible
  • Simple adjustment, alignment and handling
  • assembly time: 2 instead of 6 hours

Few components, simple handling - picture shows a 180° application
Simpler alignment on the robot due to defined angle grid and perforated grid for fixing the height
