I am familiar with the energy chains from igus and know the dimensions and kinds of movement of my energy supply system.
I know the ambient variables of my application and, working in comfort online, I would like to configure my energy chain or consult an expert about an individual project.
I am unsure what energy chain I should choose for my application and need more information.
I know the type of movement and require the appropriate energy supply system: horizontal movement, vertical movement, circular and spiral movement etc.
Energy chains (also called energy supply chains, e-chains) are mechanical machine elements. They are used to guide and protect energy, data and signals that have to withstand the most diverse environmental influences. The decisive fact about cable guides is the symbiosis of the components moving against each other. They include cables, hoses, interior separation elements, strain relief devices and guide troughs.
The materials used have to be optimally matched to each other so that maximum operating times and a long service life are achieved. Thanks to energy chains, downtime is avoided wherever energy in the form of electricity, gas, air or fluids is supplied to moving loads.
Tech up, cost down: we will always give you at least one of the two. We have been pursuing this goal for you for many years.
This year we are presenting our new innovative energy supply systems that make the operation of your machines even better and more cost-efficient:
Are you interested in our energy chain but would like to see it yourself first before making a final decision?
Then please order a free sample from us.
Our e-chain is already being used reliably in many hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide - from automatic beverage machines and CNC machines to steelworks. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for the most varied of industries. It has a modular design and is therefore easy to assemble. Completely media-friendly and designed for very small bend radii, igus chains are suitable for small installation spaces as well as for large, heavy and rigid cables or hoses.
Our energy chains are already reliably used in hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide - from beverage vending machines to steel mills. Across the globe, more than 400,000 customers from 50 branches of industry use igus energy chains.
"For economic and technical reasons we have chosen to use exclusively standard products from igus. In this way, the necessary changes can be simply made when systems are expanded, for example."
A finished engine every 14 seconds. This only works with a great degree of automation. Our smart plastics help to make it possible to monitor the plant in Austria.
Here, two robots were equipped with a wide range of guided cables and hoses involving a complex geometric design. The dust generated here can be extracted directly.
As long as six football pitches: here, the world's longest chain from igus has already been in use for ten years. With a PPDS early warning system for any faults that may occur.
Here you will find an overview of further successful customer applications.

Every year, 3,000 e-chain tests are performed in order to ensure that they can withstand the hardest of conditions.
Ask igus to recycle your energy chains, irrespective of the manufacturer. How does it work?
