Swarf-resistant energy chains up to +850°C

No hot swarf melting or embedding into the chain, thanks to igus igumid HT material

igus® energy tubes have been used in areas where swarf occurs for more than 20 years. Some applications, depending on amount, size and temperature of the chips, left burn and melt marks, however. The new igus material igumid HT puts an end to that. This opens new possibilities for replacing more complex and expensive steel energy supplies.

igumid HT in a test

In the test, 20g of hot swarf (200 to 850°C) was brought into contact with different materials. The graphic shows the amount of chips that have burned into the material. Test winner: igumid HT up to 850°C.

The new igumid HT: no swarf remain attached

Recommended energy chains for protection against swarf (chips)

R2.1 series e-chains

R2.1 series e-chains  
Cost-effective and stable swarf protection with openable lid

  • Inner height: 26 - 75mm
  • Cost-effective
  • Low noise operation due to integrated brake

RX tubes

RX tubes  
Extremely swarf-resistant for the use directly in chip areas

 

  • Inner height: 42 - 73mm
  • IP tested by TÜV NORD CERT GmbH
  • Round contours mean that chips simply bounce off
