igus has launched a new video demonstrating just how quickly the E4.350 – described as the world’s largest polymer energy chain – can be assembled. The e-chain is simply assembled by connecting its interlocking side-links together. Adding mounting brackets and interior separation brackets is also straightforward, and the internal crossbars provide increased rigidity for the chain. Thanks to the modular design, the desired length can be quickly constructed reducing installation time.
The tribopolymer used in the production of the energy chain is suited for working tough environments; the E4.350 chain is resistant to corrosion, sea-water and oil. This makes it suitable for moving large, heavy hoses and cables on oil platforms, in steelworks and for other heavy engineering. The e-chain is capable of carrying fill weights greater than 100kg/m and unsupported lengths of up to 6.5m and has an inner height of 350mm.
