Zipper e-chain® and e-tube - Quick installation with "zipper"

Extremely fast opening and closing with zipper e-chains® and e-tubes - zipper e-chains® deliver in terms of practicality and performance. The "zipper" function makes them a very useful product to reduce assembly time. The small pitch, the tough-elastic zipper-band, and the sturdy link work well in high acceleration environments. The igus® "zipper" series is one of the most popular e-chain® series for demanding applications.
 
Your benefits:

  • quick and easy opening and closing
  • Small pitch for low noise, smooth running
  • High acceleration rates: 100m/s2 and more
