Press Release Summary:
Energy ChainÂ® System E6 utilizes links that are connected by and isolated from each other through flexible connecting element. It includes snap-open crossbars for easy installation of cables; separators to guide individual cables with chain; and low weight and corrosion resistance through all-polymer design. System is offered in 3 heights and up to 16 width/radius combinations. Applications include machine tools, measuring devices, and semiconductor equipment.
Original Press Release:
E6 Low-Noise, Low Vibration Energy Chain® Cable Carrier
EAST PROVIDENCE, RI (October 4, 2002) Energy Chain® System E6 offers low-noise and low-vibration performance through its unique way of joining links together: Rather than links snapping
into each other through a pin and bore design as in traditional cable carriers, System E6 links are connected by - and isolated from each other - through a flexible connecting element. Together with a short link pitch this provides for a very quiet and vibration-free operation, even at very high speeds.
Vibration-free performance is required for precision machine tools, measuring devices, semiconductor equipment and high-end medical devices. Noise is an issue that has to be addressed in any environment - from manufacturing to medical labs.
Energy Chain® System E6 offers the same benefits of other igus® cable carriers: Snap-open crossbars for easy installation of cables; separators to better guide individual cables with the chain; low weight and corrosion resistance through an all-polymer design. System E6 is offered in 3 heights and up to 16 width / radius combinations.
