"E4.1 system" applications

E4.1 - ONE e-chains® series for virtually all applications - The E4.1 system combines all the benefits of its three predecessors and is the best igus® e-chain® in the product range. The E4.1 series are more stable with the same or smaller dimensions than their predecessors. Almost all accessory components and mounting dimensions are identical. With the igus® E4.1 system, the service life of your application can be increased still more and thereby lower costs.

Typical industrial sectors and applications

cranes, indoor cranes, composting plants, sewage treatment plants, machine tools, general mechanical engineering, material handling, refrigeration, construction machinery, woodworking, robotics and handling

Travelling column milling machine

The bronze vector went to the advanced development of a travelling column milling machine.

Travelling column milling machine    

Machining center bridge work

The H4.56 series was preferred because of the higher unsupported length, the plastic crossbars and easier installation of competitor's product.

Machining center bridge work    

Winding machine for cable

E4.1 application with partially unsupported lower run

Winding machine for cable    

Coal tipper

Only six weeks' service life with competitor's product. No downtime after six months with igus®.

Coal tipper    

Elevator crane

Competitor's chains broke down regularly, igus® chains worked without downtimes.
