Plastic energy chains PKK

Plastic energy chains

A development from many years of experience, which combines all the advantages of plastic energy chains to one system

System allows

  • positive locking stays
  • fast stay assembly and disassembly
  • easy to shorten and lengthen
  • the three-dimensional chain

PKK charakteristic

All ekd plastic energy chains are equipped with the integrated plastic connector. Additional components for attaching the energy chain are not required.


Bending radii 40 – 500 mm
Inner height 16 – 80 mm
Inner width 30 – 300 mm


Energy chain 0,6 – 3,4 kg/m

PKK applications

robotics | handling equipment | machine tools | textile machinery

PKK other charakteristic


The maximum range of travel is determined by the arrangement and the additional weight (line weight). At normal arrangement the maximum travel is double free carrying length. Support rollers or similar constructive steps can increase this value.
Travel distances up to 100 meters are possible.

Travel speed

There are no limits for the travel speed in general. But at gliding arrangements application specific influences have to be taken into account.


The acceleration is not subject to any restriction. Boundaries can only be achieved at high line tension forces encountered by the weights.


Long term temperature limits are inbetween -20°C and 100°C.
