"E2 micro" applications

E2 micro e-chain® are very small, low-weight, one-piece energy chains ideal for highly dynamic applications. E2 micro e-chain® is not-to-be-opened, stable and available in many versions. igus® also offers numerous accessories and mounting options. "UPGrades" of the snap-open versions are available for many types; they are interchangeable among themselves and can thus be used as, among others, spare parts pack for new assembly options.

Typical industrial sectors and applications:

General construction machinery, models (micro e-chain®), automatic doors, vehicles, measuring machines, electronic handling systems
