Energy chains for protection against dirt and swarf

The primary task of the family of closed tubes is to protect cables from dirt, dust and swarf. Being openable thanks to hinged or removable lids, stop-dogs encapsulated and protected against dirt and high stability mean that the tube product range becomes standard when it gets dirty.

Products

R2.1

Cost-effective and stable swarf protection with openable lid

  • Inner height: 26 to 75mm
  • Available in two versions:
    • Openable from both sides along the outer radius
    • Openable from both sides along the inner radius
  • Large inner height and cost-effective at the same time
  • Quiet operation due to integrated brake
  • Smooth edge-free design


RX tubes

rx

Extremely swarf-resistant for the use directly in chip areas

  • Inner height: 42 to 73mm
