Long travel distances always pose special requirements on an e-chain system®. From a certain point, the upper run needs the potential to glide on the lower run or on glide bars. Moreover the e-chain system® requires guidances to prevent a lateral offset. In most cases this is ensured by a guide trough. There are also applications in which a guide trough is not required due to optical or spatial conditions. In order to cover this gap, igus® developed the autoglide system in 1995. autoglide are self-aligning e-chains®, which can dispense with guide troughs up to 50 m travel. You save purchase and installation costs and can keep tracks in the hall free for forklifts or industrial trucks.
