The E6 series offers numerous advantages in addition to long life cycles. Thus they are distinguished by an extremely low noise, low vibration operation, and they are for this reason well suited for low-vibration drive concept of the linear motor. It minimizes the polygon effect which can occur during rolling of energy supply mechanisms. The extremely low noise development has been certified by the TÜV Immissionsschutz und Energiesysteme GmbH inspection body. The large product range enables the selection of the optimum chain size in each case - the designer can also choose from a large range of possibilities in the interior separation. The same applies to the mounting brackets.
The technical inspection authority's certificate shows a sound level of max. 46db(A)
e-chain®: To close, press and click into position
E-Tube®: Remove lid by prizing
You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.
Joining and separating of chain links Connect and remove lid: e-tube.
Applications in various industrial sectors and in the igus® test laboratory.

Energy chain system E6 - Application example of high-speed robot
igus® E6 system - e-chain® in the sound cabin in the igus® test laboratory. The "click" sound is caused by the insertion of the cable in the e-chain®. The igus® E6 system is at present the most low-noise and low-vibration solution in the igus® e-chain® product range.
