E4.1 - ONE e-chains® series for virtually all applications

The E4.1 system combines all the benefits of its three predecessors and is the best igus® e-chain® in the product range. The E4.1 series are more stable with the same or smaller dimensions than their predecessors. Almost all accessory components and mounting dimensions are identical. With the igus® E4.1 system, the service life of your application can be increased still more and thereby lower costs.

Overview of E4.1 advantages

Rugged, low-noise, modular. System E4.1 - utilized advantages of the tested and proven E4 series

 

Opening of the e-chain®: Push down the groove of the cross bar with a screw driver. Loosen by prizing (against the clamp)

 

Straight run and fast assembly through inner-/outer-link design Very high stiffening and carrying capacity when shear forces are at work by the tongue and groove design

 
e-chain® selection aids

You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.

Assembly instruction video

Assembly video with accurate description for joining, splitting and opening e-chains® and e-tubes.

Application examples

Applications in various industrial sectors and in the igus® test laboratory.
