    Default Energy Chain Lubrication

    Building a machine where the energy chain is quite full and the machine will make millions of cycles. Anyone have experience lubricating the cables in the chain so they slide easily against each other? I am thinking a wax based pulling compound that dries to a slippery film.

    Any room to go with larger track? If so, you might be able to add the internal divider plates that help keep cables and hoses organized and minimize rubbing. IMHO, the best solution for longevity with minimal attention.
