Known as the umbilical cord of modern machines, energy chains ensure the supply of energy, data, liquids and signals while in constant motion. For nearly 40 years, igus has been developing, producing and testing plastic energy chains during which the expertise accumulated is being continuously refined and directly incorporated in new products. Now the company has produced a short video to show how its energy chains make movement easy.
Today, millions of igus e-chains are in use in applications around the world – from beverage dispensers to welding robots. They have a modular design and are therefore easy to assemble. Not only resistant to various media and designed for very small bend radii, e-chains are well suited for confined installation spaces as well as large, heavy and rigid cables and hoses.
Configure complete energy supply systems for short or long travels as well as for hanging and rotating applications. Simply choose cables for your interior separation, enter the application and environmental parameters of your application and the energy chain configurator “e-chain expert” will suggest suitable options for your energy supply.
