approx. 115 m cable for 115% travel distance
approx. 3,000 mm length for the "cable loops"
On festooning systems, cables "hang" around free and loose on cranes in the wind and weather. Unprotected, festoon systems are exposed to fluctuating temperatures plus sand and salt (on outdoor installations). They can also easily get tangled, which then quickly leads to hold-ups. igus® offers a secure and modular alternative to festooning systems in cranes, with which you can save cables and avoid downtimes.
Cables hang uncontrollably and can get caught in the crane structure (e.g. due to wind).
Cables are securely guided in the e-chain® and cannot get caught at any point.
Strain relief with steel ropes.
double strain relief with CFY clamps.
Approximately 50% less cable compared to festoon
no extra mechanical load on the cable
the cables are always guided with a bending radius defined at all times
secure in the guide trough
almost maintenance free
savings on steel construction
everything in one system
No additional drives and controls (roller chains reduce the required push/pull forces by about 75%!)
Trolley speeds of up to 10m/s and travel distances of up to 800m
Save up to 60% power with P4
