Igus has expanded its product range of support trays for secure and maintenance-free operation of unsupported e-chain applications. Uneven surfaces, high dynamic stresses or noise-sensitive environments – support trays help to keep energy chains moving smoothly and safely. With the latest version, the motion plastics specialist igus now offers a lightweight and long-lasting solution made from corrosion-resistant aluminium, which can be easily adapted to the respective igus energy chain by its flexible width adjustment.
When e-chains operate in ‘unsupported’ mode, support trays enable the lower run of the chain to roll smoothly and securely. In addition to the previously available versions made of galvanised steel and stainless steel, the company now offers a light option made of anodised aluminium. With the anodising process, the metal becomes highly resistant to corrosion and blends well visually in the design of modern machines.
