1. Enclosed e-tube –
protection against minor contamination,
weld spatter and environmental influences
2. No pins or bore connection,
3. Can be lengthened and shortened as required, thanks to the modular design
4. Very large gliding surfaces
5. Internal stop-dog
6. Small pitch for quiet, smooth running
7. KMA mounting brackets with option to fasten from any side (strain relief
is possible through separate tiewrap clamps)
* The required clearance height is HF = H + 40 mm (at 2 kg/m fill weight) Speak to us if you have very confined space.
** The calculated length corresponds to the chain length without mounting brackets.

from 6 m to max. 60 mChain length= S/2+K2Long travels - gliding (up to max. 60 m) Here, the e-chain® upper runs gliding on the lower run in a guide trough. We recommend letting our engineers support you when planning this type of system. In case of travel lengths between 4.0 and 6 m, we recommend a larger unsupported e-chain®.

Option 1: Separators
Option 1 – Separators
Separators can be placed anywhere in the chain's cross-section to divide the interior of the e-chain – As standard, separators are fitted every 2nd chain link!
Indentations in the separator show the "clamping" side of the separator.
On this side, the separator is securely locked in the tube lid or base
Standard division with separator, R6.40.11 – NOTE: R6.40.11 is possible only in combination with Bi = 62!
