Energy chains for special environments


Special solutions for special requirements

igus energy chains are also advantageous when it comes to their use in demanding ambient conditions - whether cleanrooms, very dusty environments, hot chips or aggressive chemicals - for every challenge, there is a solution in the e-change range of products. Working with customers, we have developed and tested products and polymers and they have been used successfully for innovative applications. From completely sealed RX tubes, small-component low-noise, low-vibration energy supply systems to elastic e-skins for cleanrooms or energy supply systems made of highly developed materials for different flammability classes - here, you can find detailed information on solutions for special requirements.
