Transport Chain

igus presents a new and versatile configurable version of the intelligent transport chain pickchain. The functional principle of the new version remains the same: a continuously rotating chain with integrated energy and data supply and individually controllable chain links. In contrary to many classic pick & place applications this chain travels unloaded and saves at least 30% of time. The new pikchain PC2 with 2 kg load per chain link is based on the modular and low priced energy chain modular kit from igus. A number of existing components and accessories allow more creative freedom to design. This simplifies assembly and reassembly and increases the economic efficiency. The side parts from the energy chain modular kit are equipped with low-friction guiding elements made of the highly durable plain bearing material iglidur J. Different widths and interior separations are available from stock. A universally usable actuator connection plate with integrated thread nuts can be equipped with grippers, cameras, tools or processing equipment. Equal to the "large" pikchain PC5 with 5 kg load per chain link, an inside rotating c-chain supplies the chain links with signals, energy and media. The c-chain guiding can be steplessly adjusted just like the drive belt guidance, which allows many options regarding the length of the travel.
