Especially for long travels on machine tools, if the e-chain® has to be gliding, metallic chips are a problem. igus® Guidelok is a cost-effective solution
1. Chips cannot get stuck between the glide surface of the upper and lower run
2. Modular system with few parts (also possible without lateral trough)
3. Enormous increase of unsupported lengths of e-chains®
4. Intelligent upper run guide with pivoting roller brackets
Applications in the chip sector
Everywhere that a gliding application is not recommended
Horizontal “Guidelok” guides the e-chain® on special spring loaded roller supports (1), that are pushed back by the e-chain®´s radius, clearing its path
The e-chain® is guided in the trough channel, pushing back the spring loaded roller support with its radius...
...which snaps back out again after the e-chain® radius has passed...
...the upper run then gets to lay on the roller support.

FFFF=Field length (standard 2,000mm)
Possible for many further series (widths and radii), thanks to the modular system
