Energy chains for long travels and heavy duty purposes

The E4.1 - the energy chain for almost any application. In our own test laboratory, our energy chains are exposed to highest levels of stress to test quality and service life. The E4.1 impresses with its long service life, high stability and modular system. Whether in the heavy-duty area or with travels over 800 metres - we guarantee absolute reliability. The E4/4HD offers the required stability in dirty environments or with high humidity.
Typical industries and applications: indoor cranes, composting plants, sewage plants...


Energy chains for heavy-duty applications & long travels



A series for virtually every application

  • Inner height: 30 to 800mm
  • Crossbars removable along the inner and outer radius
  • For especially demanding applications
  • Undercut design for the best possible lateral stability
  • High push force on long travels and for large unsupported lengths
  • Noise-reducing "brakes" and optional noise dampers
  • Outer and inner side links for quick assembly
  • With or without pretension



High fill weight with long travels

  • Inner height: 56 to 80mm
  • Crossbars every link: crossbars removable along the inner and outer radius
  • High stability
  • For especially demanding applications
  • Ideal for heavy duty applications



Friction kept to a minimum, twice the service life

  • Inner height: 32 to 80mm
  • Crossbars every link: crossbars removable along the inner and outer radius
  • Longer service life due to maintenance-free tribo-polymer plain bearings in conjunction with the chain links
  • Long travels of up to 800m and more
  • High fill weight of up to 30kg/m
