Guide Troughs

Guide troughs are used in long travels according to chain type from 5–12 m. They support the smooth low-friction operation of the igus E-Chain and E-Tubes. The infeed point is at the centre of the travel, and the E-Chain glides by itself on one half of the travel. For the other half, we recommend glide bars mounted in the trough, on which the E-Chain glides. igus guide troughs have glide bars made of extremely abrasion-resistant plastic igulen.
