The modular design of igus® e-chains® facilitates this space-saving and unconventional solution. For modern platform technology, such as performance stages, a variety of conduits which adjust the stage height must be accommodated. Lack of space almost invariably presents particular difficulties. The photo below shows an e-chain® in a "Zig-Zag" configuration. The unextended e-chain® is stored in a "basket" underneath the stage. If the stage is raised, the e-chain® unfolds, generating little to no noise. This construction is possible with Systems E4/4, E4/0 e- chains® as well as many other types. Please consult igus® for these kinds of applications.
The liftband can be used to implement high vertical applications that have large amounts of space in the horizontal direction, but only permit limited system height.
Very high travels are possible
Low abrasion, almost no friction of the chain links with each other
Little limitation of cable bending radii
Silent operation, compact
Cables are simply pressed in place
