Energy supply over long travels made even safer and more efficient. Design study: new kind of trough system for safe chain guidance for side-mounted chains

Automation for long travels ... plane-chain

For maximum fail-safety in applications with high speeds and cycle rates, such as linear robots. In the new kind of trough system, e-chains® are guided safely in a side-mounted position. The special trough contours guide the chains safely in a deepened channel. The use of stainless-steel troughs with a low friction factor and a plastic layer of insulation fitted on the outside lead to a long service life and low-noise operation. The complete system can be enclosed securely with a cover. The design also ensures a low installation height for space-saving use on linear robots.

Low installation height, very space-saving

High safety, since e-chain® is side-mounted

Noise insulation

Optional full enclosure


Typical application areas:Linear robots/7. Axis robots, cranes
