Quick and easy to install guide trough for long travels of energy chain

Quick and easy to install guide trough for long travels of energy chain Energy chain specialist igus UK offers the Guidelock Slimline F in its range of cost-effective energy chain guiding systems. The Guidelock system can be installed easily horizontally or vertically and is designed to prevent cables swinging with the movement of the machine and becoming damaged, without the cost of using long runs of trough.

Guidelock Slimline F consists of a lightweight aluminium trough containing the igus Guidelock system to reliably guide energy chains, and is an excellent solution to supporting moving energy chains in dynamic applications with speeds of up to 10m/s with travels of up to 20m.  

Additionally up to 80% less trough is required compared with alternative guiding systems, which reduces costs, and the energy chain is protected from extremes of movement.  The Guidelock Slimline F is also quick to install and allows easy access for servicing. Debris is less likely to settle between the sliding surfaces with the Guidelock system meaning that there is less chance of damage to the cables.
