With the tool-free assembly using the new Snap mechanism, the energy chain is attached to the machine in a recess with a single click. Additional connectors or screws are no longer required. As the German company maintains, the load capacity of this system has been successfully tested in short-term tensile tests and load cycle tests over several million cycles. Particularly in the case of small energy chains and high unit numbers, a considerable time can be saved during installation as a result, which also means a cost advantage. The easy release of the power supply chains is possible with an unlocking tool.
Tool-free assembly of energy chains
Following the integrated connection, that is to say a connection possibility at each link of the energy chain, ekd Gelenkrohr are now presenting a further unique feature for energy chains.
