I am familiar with the energy chains from igus and know the dimensions and kinds of movement required by my energy supply system.
I know the ambient variables of my application and would like to configure it conveniently online or consult an expert about an individual project.
I am unsure what energy chain I should choose for my application and need more information.
No need to spend lots of time looking for the right energy chain series and relevant accessories. Sophisticated engineering made simple. Complete sets in just three clicks!
Are you interested in our energy chain but would like to see it for yourself first before making a final decision?
Then you are welcome to order a free sample from us.
Our polymer energy chains are already in use in many hundreds of thousands of applications around the world - from automatic beverage machines to CNC machines and steelworks. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for a wide varieties of industries and manufacturing sectors. It has a modular design and is therefore easy to assemble. Here, you can design the right energy chain for your application!
The term energy chain or e-chain is closely related to the terms drag chain and energy supply chain. The energy chain is a product that safely transports cables along a certain distance. They are primarily used for machines where the guided cables and hoses have to be moved a certain distance without being damaged, so that a machine shutdown is prevented. The energy chain is a safe way of moving energy and data cables or media hoses over this distance.
There are different types and versions of energy chains to meet different requirements. For example, there are completely enclosed versions that withstand external influences such as dirt or swarf and still guarantee the function of the machine. Variants specifically designed for several directions of movement, such as on robots, are also common, as are special materials that prevent electrostatic charging.
igus 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."
