Energy chain systems offer a space-saving alternative for the cable routing on the slewing gear. The chain is guided lying on its side with the help of a round guide trough. In this way, angles of rotation of up to 540 ° and speeds of rotation of up to 360 °/s can be achieved.
Lathes, spindles and machine tools nearly always involve some form of rotation. The guidance of electric cables and hydraulic and pneumatic hoses is usually a difficult challenge. Even though an individual solution is needed for each machine, a variation of the following six possibilities is usually involved: 1. Coiling of an e-chain 2. Coiling of […]
