Small energy chains for small installation spaces

Often, the installation space is the limiting factor when cables and chains are chosen. Here, there is a need for small energy chains that also work in small installation spaces without any problems. We have developed and designed our mini energy chains in such a way that they can be used without problems in small installation spaces. The new generation of our E2.1 micro impresses with its lightweight and compact design. Furthermore, it convinces due to its simplicity, stability and easy opening.  

Typical industries and applications: general mechanical engineering, measuring machines, handling systems...
