guidefast: the quick e-chain trough for indoor cranes from igus

igus is launching a guide trough system for energy chains that is quick and easy to install. guidefast is a simple modular system that comprises mounting brackets, clips and a trough - significantly fewer components than standard systems, thus reducing installation time by up to 80 per cent. The cost-effective guidefast system is part of the complete igus offering for crane applications, which includes the trough, E2/000 series energy chain and chainflex cables.

Justin Leonard, director, igus, comments: "The modular design of the guidefast system simplifies the installation process at every step. The special brackets are mounted via screw/thread or welded bolts and allow vertical fine-adjustments. Furthermore, the static cable runs can be fixed directly to the integrated strain relief part of the bracket - this simplifies the installation process considerably as additional cable clips or hose clamps are no longer required."

The guidefast system is available in galvanised steel, stainless steel and black powder coated steel to cater for a variety of application environments. In addition, the troughs are available in 2m lengths and in a variety of widths to accommodate a large range of harnessed energy chain sizes and associated fill weights. Cable entry points and prefabricated hole patterns are located along the length of the trough at 500mm intervals for attaching the energy chain, speeding up installation time and reducing costs.

All igus products and pre-harnessed cable carrying systems go through vigorous in-house testing and are delivered with the igus longer life guarantee. During testing, guidefast has proven its strength and resistance against vibration and harsh environmental conditions.
