C6 energy chain system for cleanroom applications

Product presentation e-chain C6

Highest cleanroom suitability, hardly any abrasion & high strength

Abrasion-resistance is the decisive parameter for energy chain applications in cleanrooms. The C6 range of energy chains is setting standards here. The abrasion is barely measurable. This is the best outcome: no abrasion can be measured when the new C6 cleanroom energy chain is used, even under high loads. Further advantages are extremely quiet operation and easy installation.Typical application areas: Electrical manufacturing, semiconductor industry, FPD production, microelectronics, panel robots, packaging, plotters, medical technology

Tech up

Tech up

  • Optimised design without any measurable abrasion
  • For ISO Cleanroom Class 1 applications
  • High strength due to tough double stop-dog system
  • Very quiet operation due to injection-moulded dampening element
  • Side parts made of ESD material to prevent static charge

Cost down

Cost down

  • Long service life due to low life cycle costs
  • Easy and therefore cost-saving installation
  • Made of igumid ESD (side parts) and iglidur J (crossbars and interior separation) as standard



  • Abrasion/cable tests in the igus® laboratory. The iglidur® J material produces 77% less abrasion*
*Measured and averaged on five different friction partners:
1) CF340.250.01 2) CF270.UL.350.01.D 3) CF886.350.01
4) CAPE.A.10.0 5) CAPU.A10.0 compared to the standard material igumid G



  • Uses less resource due to long service life
  • Have your energy chain recycled at the end of its life cycle with the igus chainge recycling program. No matter what manufacturer.
    You will receive a voucher.
  • igus has been an investor in Mura Technology from the beginning and is helping advance chemical recycling. From plastic waste to crude oil in 20 minutes.

Tests in the igus laboratory

Cleanroom test laboratory

Continuous cleanroom tests were performed in the IPA-certified igus cleanroom laboratory during the development process to find a solution that will meet the increasing cleanroom requirements.

Abrasion test

Various sliding surfaces are tested and evaluated for abrasion.
