DISCONTINUED MODEL For new designs, we recommend the improved e-chain® Series E2 tubes, R58 new Series R58 is available from stock in limited numbers. Product support and storage are limited as of 2012. For questions, please refer to your igus® contact person. Thank you for your understanding to the E2 R Series R58 new
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 35 mm (at 0.5 kg/m fill weight), which should be observed in all types of applications. Please contact us if you have particularly confined space requirements.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

Option 1: Separators
Separators are used to vertically separate the interior of the energy tube R58. They provide the option of dividing the interior into multiple chambers. They can be used flexibly.

"Super-aluminium" trough - the igus® standard for guide troughs
The "Super-aluminium" trough is a modular system of guide troughs for long travels (where e-chains® glide on each other). The basic "Super-aluminium" trough is available in simple, cost-effective "basic designs" and can be expanded for sophisticated plant construction. This universal usability makes it the recommended igus® standard for guide troughs.
