The energy supply chains of the Easytrax series from Tsubaki Kabelschlepp are designed to enable extremely fast cable occupancy: cables, hoses, etc. are simply pressed into the flexible slat brackets. Tools are not necessary. This means that up to 1 m of the energy chain can be filled in less than 1 s - this saves assembly costs.
Due to the flexible slat brackets, cable towing promises even more advantages: They pivot laterally and not into the line space, so that a very high degree of filling is achieved. A divider system including height divisions is intended to ensure safe separation of the lines. In the interior there are smooth surfaces without interference edges to protect the cables. The energy chains are available with inner heights from 4.6 mm to 31 mm and inner widths from 7 mm to 78 mm.
Chain and cable from a single source
Stable but flexible
In addition, the 2K technology should also provide advantages. Hard chain bodies made of glass fiber reinforced material are combined with flexible locking clips made of elastic special plastic. In this way, energy supply chains can be implemented that should combine the apparently contradictory properties of stability and flexibility. The use of glass fiber reinforced plastic results in a greater additional load than with comparable chains of this size. According to the manufacturer, the stable chain construction of the Easytrax series guarantees high torsional rigidity and supports very long unsupported lengths of up to 2.4 m. The locking system in the stop system is intended to ensure high lateral stability. Due to an integrated noise reduction, the all-plastic chain is very quiet during operation. (sh)

Readychain means customized cables and completely ready-to-install energy chain systems. Igus relies on automated processes and a holistic view of the customer
Inspired by nature: The chain links of the new E4Q energy chain from Igus have a streamlined design to reduce weight and a completely new opening web concept with locking tabs. These ensure that the series can be opened and closed in seconds without tools. The energy chain was specially developed for the requirements of unsupported lengths and long travels
