Low-vibration, low-noise and abrasion-free e-chain® cable carriers

To keep noise to a minimum in production, you need machines that run smoothly. Our cable carriers enable a quiet, trouble-free production process. The quiet movement is realized by combining a very low inclination towards vibration and a minimization of noise. Cable carriers in a cleanroom environment have to be especially abrasion-resistant as airborne particles above the strict limits specified in standards are released and can contaminate the cleanroom.The e-skin energy supply is suitable for cleanrooms according to ISO Class 1, so that it can be used in absolutely clean-air spaces. The simple and reclosable opening mechanism enables easy maintenance and inspection of the installed cables.  Typical applications and industries include semiconductor manufacturing, microelectronics, device displays and the printer and plotter industries.
