Mono cable chain characteristics
The range of SHINSUNG moulded plastic cable and hose drag chains provides reliable system for the supply of services to moving equipment. They can be used whenever the cables/hoses are light, the travel is small and the operating environment permits the use of plastics. SHINSUNG plastic drag chains have been in service for many years and they are used to supply robots, machine tools, computerised handling systems and measuring devices.
The chain is assembled using one-piece moulded units easily snap connected to form a chain of the required length. The design of the link provides the self-supporting feature of the chain. The unique design of the SHINSUNG plastic chain with hinged bars permits the easy installation of cable and hoses. This new design feature allows the chain to be replaced should accidental damage occur without disconnection of the cable and hoses from the supply.
An even support surface is necessary to ensure correct operation of the SHINSUNG drag chain. If this not available then a support tray in standard lengths of 2000mm can be supplied(special designs on request).
Installing the chain
The static fixed point of the drag chain should be placed in the centre of the travel length. This ensures the shortest possible length of chain between the fixed and moving points. Connecting brackets of galvanised steel are provided as a standard feature and the brackets are normally pressed into place.For longer lengths of travel and higher loads, the brackets are bolted to the chain.
