Lightweight R4.1L energy supply systems made of high temperature resistant plastic

igus introduces a high-temperature option for its R4.1L series of enclosed energy tubes that can withstand short-term contact with hot chips up to +850°C. Developed specifically for use in equipment, such as welding and plasma-cutting machines, the lids of the chain are made of igumid HT. This special high-temperature material ensures that the searing debris will not stick to the tubes or burn into the material.

“Our new high-temperature R4.1L energy tubes can be used with the peace of mind that they will protect cables against very high temperature chips and spatter without incurring damage,” says Justin Leonard Director, the-echain director at igus.

All igus R4.1L high-temperature energy tubes are equipped with easy-release, snap-open hinges so customers can quickly repair or replace cables housed within. These hinges are located either along the inner or the outer radius depending on customer preference. Horizontal or vertical cable separators, integrated strain relief and additional accessories are also available.

They are also available to order as readychain, a preassembled energy chain system, complete with energy chain, mounting brackets, cables, connectors, and all accessories.
