Zipper e-chain® and e-tube - Quick installation with "zipper"

Lightning fast opening and closing with Zipper e-chain® und e-tubes - Zipper e-chain® satisfy by their practicability and performance. The "zipper" function shortens the installation time The small pitch, the rugged elastic zipper band and the heavy duty links amaze in high accelerations. The Zipper series is one of the most popular igus® e-chain® series in the sophisticated industrial sectors.

 

iF design award for Zipper design

 

Simple opening and closing

 
 
e-chain® selection aids

You can find the right e-chain® quickly by entering concrete parameters and with the aid of a comparison table.

Installation instructions

Joining and separating of the Zipper e-chain®.
