Magnetic adapter keeps energy chains on track

Magnetic adapter keeps energy chains on track

Igus introduces magsnap - a new magnetic adapter that holds a plastic energy chain run onto a metallic surface, preventing it from swinging back and forth or moving out of its axis of motion. Eliminating the need for installing a complete guide trough system, magsnap is a cost-effective and lightweight alternative that also reduces assembly time by easily clipping onto the crossbars of existing energy chains. Typical applications include materials handling and cranes with hanging energy chains.

"Many of the innovative products from Igus are driven by collaborations with customers for specific projects and magsnap is an example of just that," explains Justin Leonard, director at Igus. "It can be retrofitted onto existing systems or as a new installation option for hanging or rotary applications."

For standard fill weights, just two magnetic adapters are needed on every fifth crossbar; for heavier fill weights more clips can be used. In order to prevent unwanted noise, dampening elements are attached to each magsnap clip.
