plane-chain – fail-safe compact solution for gantry applications and machine tools

For maximum fail-safety in applications with high speeds and cycle rates, such as gantries. In the new kind of trough system, e-chains are guided safely in a side-mounted position. The special trough contours guide the chains safely in a deepened channel. The use of stainless-steel troughs with a low friction factor and a plastic layer of insulation fitted on the outside lead to a long service life and low-noise operation. The complete system can be enclosed securely with a cover. The design also ensures a low installation height for space-saving use on gantries.
 
In addition to the application potential of the plane-chain for automation, the new concept in enclosed form is also suitable for the energy supply on cranes. Here, cables and e-chains within the corrosion-free troughs are protected from severe damage caused by wind and weather.
