Large energy chains for high loads

The E4.1L is a highly dynamic, light and cost-effective energy chain for almost all applications. Due to its high stability and stiffness, it can be used for high loads without problems. In addition, the standard modular system offers a great variety of accessory components. That means that the energy chain can be expanded as required and adapted according to the application.
 
Typical industries and applications: general mechanical engineering, robot technology and handling, sewage plants, material handling...
