"E6 system" applications

The abrasion resistant fastening elements replace the conventional pin-hole connection For this reason, E6 is suitable for clean room application This was confirmed by the IPA Fraunhofer Institute, ISO Class 3*. The special structure of the chain link and the small pitches make the E6 system especially low noise. A measuring conducted by the TÜV Rheinland in May 2002 indicate a value of 46dB(A)** at a sound level caused by a minimum 10dB(A) of external noise. Another advantage of the fastener is that by the application of an electrically conductive material (igumid ESD on request), a continuous constant conductivity can be guaranteed. The following results can be obtained with standard material: ESD compatibility class 1 according to SEMI E78-0998 for Series E6.29.050.055.0
* according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1 for Series E6.29.050.055.0 for v = 1 m/s and v = 2 m/s
** Speed 2 m/s, 1.5 m unsupported, Series E6.52.10.100.0, 10dB(A)

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.
