Test laboratory for energy chains
More than three billion test cycles per year are carried out at a total of 180 testing stations.
It is 21,25% lighter, but is it also less stable because of this? To answer this question, igus® compared a newly developed e-chain® in the lab with predecessor models. For a period of four days, both energy chains were loaded with 1.6 kg while unsupported.
At 18 mm, the new development has more than 63% less sag.
