Insert energy chain on the side

mkogelmann | 5. May 2020

The installation space for energy chains is often limited in height. One solution, although not always practical, is then to reduce the bend radius of the energy chain. But this is not always possible. Either the reduction of the bend radius is not sufficient for the chain to fit into the installation space, or it […]

Designing more cost-effectively with E4.1L

Michael Hornung | 23. April 2020

Especially in machine tools, many electrical cables and hoses run through the energy chain. Hoses for hydraulics and cooling with large diameters are often necessary to meet the requirements of flow rates. This means that designers must select energy chains with a large interior space.

The moving lower run

Lars Butenschön | 21. April 2020

Installation situation e-chain with moving lower run Sometimes the installation situation requires turning the orientation of the e-chain and turning it upside down, so to speak. The fixed end is mounted “up” and the moving end is “down”. This is a very special installation situation and places other demands on the design of the energy […]

Selecting the correct mounting bracket

mkogelmann | 7. April 2020

Almost all mounting brackets are available in two variants. The first pivots, the second is fixed. At this point, many design engineers wonder when they should use the pivoting and when the fixed version. Pivoting mounting brackets are standard for gliding or horizontally unsupported applications But why is that? The pivoting mounting bracket compensates for […]
