The easy chain energy chain from igus is dirt and dust, corrosion and wear resistant, providing a long service life. The key benefit of the product is that it has a quick press-in cable feature integrated within the cross bars. This allows the cables to be inserted into the e-chain easily with a simple press of a thumb. In addition, the crossbars have an overlapping feature which creates secure housing of the cable. The energy chain is produced in the igus polymer material igumid NB which is strong and flexible. It has a maximum tensile strength of up to 120 MPa and can withstand maximum temperatures of 170ºC. The design features and material properties of the easy chain make it very versatile and suitable for a wide range of industrial sectors, including packaging machines, general machinery, office equipment and electronic apparatus. An "ESD" electrically conductive version of easy chain is also available, which is based on GC PTB-certified material and has been designed for applications where any electrostatic discharges are potentially damaging.
