Zipper e-chain® and e-tube - Quick installation with "zipper"

Lightning fast opening and closing with Zipper e-chain® and e-tubes - Zipper e-chain® satisfy by their practicability and performance. The "zipper" function shortens the installation time The small pitch, the rugged elastic zipper band and the heavy duty links amaze in high accelerations. The Zipper series is one of the most popular igus® e-chain® series in the sophisticated industrial sectors.
