The properties of the E4/light system have two effects: a reduced thickness of the lateral link (for all types) and a thinner crossbar (for some types: 14240, 14340, 1640). Lower weight, larger inner space and lower price besides a compromise in thickness. E4/light e-chain® attains solutions with an optimum price/performance ratio for many industrial sectors. Especially for short travels, hanging and small standing designs. E4/light types are often the first choice.
E4/light - Now stronger with tongue and groove
Opening of the e-chain®: Push down the groove of the cross bar with a screw driver. Loosen by prizing (against the clamp)
Lid/Bottom dismantling of e-tube: Press vertically on the groove of the lid/bottom with a screwdriver and prize it up
You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.
Joining, separating and opening of the e-chain® and e-tubes.
