E2 & E4: Chip-repellent up to 1,562° F

New: Energy tubes that repel hot chips up to 1,562° F

e-chains

igus® energy tubes have been employed in the chip sector for almost 20 years Some applications - depending on number, size and temperature of the chips - leave behind scorch and melt marks. The new igus® material igumid HT has put an end to it. Now new potentials open up for the replacement of unmanageable metal energy supply systems.

Delivery program: All E2 and E4 energy tubes from the standard program as special design

Sectors: Machine tools, casting plants, steel works

Tested at the igus® laboratory

5 materials, chips getting increasingly hotter – only igumid HT can withstand up to 1,562° F

Test: 20 grams of hot chips (392 up to 1,562° F) was applied on every test material. The graph shows which chip quantity was burnt-in. Winner: igumid HT up to 1,562° F (orange).

Comparison of temperature resistance  Quantity (g) of burnt-in chips depending on the temperature
Standard material igumid G: Chips stick, burn in
Novel igumid HT: No sticking chips
