E3 system

E3 combines small pitch, smooth running, low noise, stability, easy assembly and low cost. The spring connector element replaces the pin and bore and avoids relative movement between the joints. This means virtually no wear or abrasion (cleanroom). To reduce production and assembly costs, the spring connector is on a length of ten links.

  • Extremely quiet operation (max. 38 dB(A))
  • IPA Cleanroom Class 1 – virtually no wear or abrasion
  • Zipper principle provides quick, easy access to cables
  • Good stability with strong, interlocking chain links
  • Easy lengthening and shortening at any point
