magsnap magnetic crossbars – secure movement without trough

... held by magnets … saves space.


For long, vertical hanging applications where a guide trough is not possible for space reasons. Magnets hold the e-chain® in the specified direction and "fix" it to a metal surface of your system. This prevents the e-chain® from swinging. The magsnap e-chain® is also ideal for vertical circular motion (RBR) as magnets hold the outer radius of the e-chain® onto the RBR guide trough and the e-chain® can be moved securely and quietly.

Holds the e-chain® securely in position for vertical, horizontal or even circular applications

Fast and easy assembly

Equipped with damping elements to reduce noise

Easy to retrofit

Typical applications:Hanging applications: storage and retrieval equipment, construction and crane lifts, automatic car parks and vertical applications with circular movement (RBR)

magsnap 1. vertical hanging | 2. on the side | 3. rotating (RBR)
The magsnaps attach to the crossbars on the outer radius. As standard they are attached every 5th link which can change based on fill weight. magsnap is available for many E2 series: E2/000, Series 3500; E2/000, Series 2600; E2 mini, Series 10; E2 mini, Series B17..

Magnets located on the outer radius
