The TKR 0200 solid plastic carrier is suited for use in handling and installation systems, robots, meters, automatic pick and place systems,printing and textile machines. A special feature of the system is that flexible plastic lips connect the chain elements. This achieves smoother operation and avoids the abrasion occurring with pin and hole connections. The abrasion-resistant plastic connectors greatly reduce wear. The low-noise construction of the chain bands and the small pitch ensure quiet operation. The unit has a total height of 36 mm, an inside height of 28mm and inside widths of 40, 60, 80 and 100mm. The bend radii are 55 - 150mm. The modular design allows simple and quick separation of the individual chain links; no additional loose connecting elements are required. Variable connection options are easy to change at the driver and fixed point simply by rotating the connecting pieces, even as a retrofit.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
