igus 3500R energy chain

Tuesday, 26 March, 2013 | Supplied by: Treotham Automation Pty Ltd



igus has introduced a roller energy chain and a modular plastic guiding profile designed for long travel lengths.

The 3500R energy chain, which can be opened from the external radius, is variable due to its modular interior separation. Easy to install, it is suitable for horizontal applications and the modular design of the roller chain link allows the use of all widths of the standard series 3500 energy chain.

The roller system not only safely drives energy, it is also energy efficient compared to other sliding solutions. The company says travels up to 150 m at speeds of up to 4 m/s can be achieved more economically. All energy chains of the series 3500R are part of a comprehensive modular system, meaning they are ready to install.

The chain series 3500R can be safely guided in the guidelite system, a modular plastic guiding profile. While the lower run of the energy chain is guided in two L-shaped and glass-fibre-reinforced guiding troughs, the upper run partially passes through guide brackets that are mounted in distances of 1 m.

This system is useful in harsh conditions with its weather resistance, insensitivity against dirt and high-impact strength at low temperature.

Because the upper run of the energy chain is only partly guided, it is designed for slow applications with low cycle numbers. Due to its open design it is insensitive to dirt so, for example, can be used in greenhouses to guide water hoses.

The corrosion-resistant, lightweight guidelite can be used as a cost-effective supporting trough for free-supporting applications and is suitable for different e-chains of the series E2/000 and E4.1.
