E4.1R rol-e energy chain

Noise and vibration reduced, whereby less drive energy is needed

New roller links have been added to the standard modular system of the E4.1 energy chain series. This makes it especially easy for users to change over from gliding to rolling energy chain systems – The roller links are completely compatible with the entire E4.1 modular system. For example, e-chains for linear robots in the machine tool industry can be easily modified to cope with greater dynamics and, at the same time, reduce the drive energy needed by up to 57 per cent.
 
Typical applications: 
long travels with high payloads, e.g. cranes, coal conveyors etc., where the payload is not so high that HD rol e-chains are needed

Tech up

Tech up

  • Easy changeover from sliding to rolling e-chain
  • A roller chain link (with BR200) suitable for all radii of the standard series (as of BR150)
  • Adapter link not necessary
  • Ideal for long travels
  • Quiet running due to equal pitch of the e-chain links
  • Very small bend radii possible, from 150mm

Cost down

Cost down

  • Subsequent retrofitting, quick assembly
  • Extend the service life of the e-chain
  • Smaller minimum bend radii possible, which can reduce the cable length, installation space and steel construction if necessary
  • Reduce the drive power
  • Predictive maintenance – optional additional i.Sense module

Proof

Proof

  • More resilient: 25% more pull/push forces possible

Sustainability

Sustainability

  • Resource conservation: conversion instead of replacement
  • Save drive power and thus energy
  • Have your energy chain recycled as part of the igus "chainge recycling programme" at the end of its life cycle. Irrespective of the manufacturer. You can receive a chainge recycling programme voucher

Reasons to choose rol e-chains ...

rol e-chains

Roll instead of slide and save up to 37% drive power. For high speeds (up to 10m/s) and the longest travels (up to 500m).

rol e-chains

rol e-chains are safe, save space, and require little maintenance. Cable lengths are up to 50% less than those required in festoons.


Modular system of the E4.1 energy chain series for long travels
 

E4.1 series

E4.1 series

E4.1 standard energy chain for nearly all applications. Stable, long service life and cost-effective.

E4.1R series

E4.1R series as supplementary set


With the rol e-chain set, the E4.56 or E4.42 becomes a rol e-chain. The result: service life is extended.

Glide pads for energy chains

Optional element: glide pads

Low-friction and low-wear sliding element and rol e-chains extend the service life of energy chains when the latter are used in applications where they slide along a surface.


The longest polymer energy chain with a travel of 615m comes from igus


"By using a roller in the chain links, the coefficient of friction on long travels drops dramatically. As a result, a saving of up to 57% of the drive energy required to move the energy chain system can be achieved. "
