Product area:
e-chain system®:


High-speed sheet feeding

igus® E6 energy chains are used at Strohmann GmbH. High-speed sheet feeder makes high demands on energy supply.

High-speed sheet feeding    

Clean room technology

No wear in the igus® energy supply system even in endurance tests. In a travel of 290 mm, a number of 50-60 cycles per hour is attained mostly in the three-shift operation.

Clean room technology    

Vibration reducing

The special structure of the chain link and the small division grant an extremely quiet and low-vibration operation of the chain.

Vibration reducing    

Multi-spindle machining center

In this application, a two-spindle horizontal machining center was equipped with particularly silent and low-vibration energy supply systems.
