System T3 - highly flexible, low-vibration profile chain

T3 System combines low-noise operation, low sound level, simple installation and cost effectiveness. The side plates that can be plugged into each other replace the conventional pin/hole connection and prevent relative movements between the joints. For this reason, an almost complete freedom from wear is attained (clean room). The geometry of the T profile ensures that almost no polygon effect is generated during the filling of the e-chain®. The T band operates very harmoniously and round, and has extremely low vibration and noise In order to reduce the manufacturing and assembly costs, the T-profile is mounted not individually, but - similar to the igus® E3 System - in a length of 8 chain links. Due to its low weight the igus® T-Band is suitable for applications with rather low fill weights and short strokes, combined with high accelerations and speeds.

Extremely low noise - System T3 tests in the igus® lab showed at 1 m measuring intervals: a value of ≈ 33 dB(A) at 26.5 dB(A) basic sound level for Series T3.29.050.038

System T3: e-chain® band for highly dynamic applications

When developing the 3-part, T-shaped "T3" profile chain, the emphasis was on low running noise. At the same time the T3 profile chain was supposed to be particularly cost-effective. This was achieved through the side-plate bands consisting of 8 chain links in one piece, as well as the option of using components from the popular E6 construction kit. The T3 profile chain is particularly flexible and runs in a round shape due to the special shape of the site plates. As there is no need for a pin/hole connection, the T3 profile chain also features particularly low abrasion and hence can also be used in clean room applications.
