From steel mills and coke plants, steel works, foundries and rolling mills to material storage - igus offers a suitable energy supply solution for all requirements of a modern, integrated steel work. Extreme conditions such as heat and dust development, high demands on precision, long travels and partly high dynamic movements require individual solutions for every application.
We have the solution for almost every requirement and we entirely dispense with steel and other metals in our materials. Steel systems have already been successfully replaced by energy supply systems made of high-performance polymers due to their exceptional suitability in many heavy-duty areas.
The requirements are high, we fulfil them:
e-chain series 4040HD/5050HD
High tensile stability (20% higher tensile strength than in the series 4040). Standard for long travels.
e-chain series P4.1
Travels of more than 1,000m. Speeds of more than 5m/s. Low vibration and noise thanks to split profile roller.
Ready-to-connect energy supplies
Ready-to-install e-chain systems and harnessed cables for your machines. No minimum order quantity, delivery in 1 to 10 days!
smart plastics enhance the reliability of your systems.
Intelligent products report the maintenance date during operation and integrate seamlessly into your processes.
Secure energy supply during the transport of slabs
In Thyssen Krupp's hot rolling mill in Duisburg, a harnessed readychain energy chain supplies the company BANG's 180t slab transport crane reliably with energy. Tight installation space, resistance to high temperatures and heavy contamination, and a trouble-free operation - the igus solution fulfils the requirements perfectly and was installed on the crane bridgewithin a short time.
Heavy duty for English steel work
At the railway engineering supplier "Corus Rail", igus energy chains on indoor and outdoor cranes replace former free-hanging festoons. We designed the fully harnessed new energy supply system consisting of strong plastic energy chains, aluminium guide troughs and chainflex cables specifically for dynamic applications in rough, corrosive environments.
