What does clearance height HF mean?

Phillip Hagedorn | 7. July 2019

The clearance height HF indicates the required installation height. All igus e-chain series are manufactured with pretension. In the clearance height section, you will find the measurement HF, which specifies the necessary clearance height, taking the pretension into account. HF = H + X HF = Required clearance height H = Nominal clearance height X […]

When do I take pivoting, and when locking mounting brackets?

Marco Thull | 5. July 2019

Pivoting mounting brackets are used as standard. In pivoting connections, a pivoting movement takes place between the mounting bracket and the first chain link. Locking mountig brackets are used in vertical standing applications – here, a locking connection is created between the first chain link and mounting bracket, which avoids a swing out of the […]

What is the upper run of an energy chain?

Marco Thull | 5. July 2019

The upper run is the upper part of an energy chain. In a horizontal linear motion, the length of the upper run changes continuously. For this reason, the maximum unsupported upper run length must be taken into account in a horizontal application. This depends on the chain series, the additional load and the max. speed/acceleration. […]

What is the lower run of an energy chain?

Marco Thull | 5. July 2019

The lower run is the lower side of an energy chain. The lower run usually rests on a support base during horizontal linear movements. If the upper run is extended and thus longer, the lower run simultaneously becomes shorter. In the other direction it is the other way round. A lower run can also be […]
