E6 system - 6-piece e-chain® - Rugged, low-noise, low-vibration, suitable for clean rooms

The E6 series offers numerous advantages in addition to long life cycles. Thus they are distinguished by an extremely low noise, low vibration operation, and they are for this reason well suited for low-vibration drive concept of the linear motor. It minimizes the polygon effect which can occur during rolling of energy supply mechanisms. The extremely low noise development has been certified by the TÜV Immissionsschutz und Energiesysteme GmbH inspection body. The large product range enables the selection of the optimum chain size in each case - the designer can also choose from a large range of possibilities in the interior separation. The same applies to the mounting brackets.

The technical inspection authority's certificate shows a sound level of max. 46db(A)
