Failures and downtimes cost nerves and money. This is often especially annoying when the fault is in the "umbilical cord", the energy supply, due to mismatched components. Dismantling the existing system is often time-consuming and expensive, and sourcing the right components from multiple manufacturers is often tedious.
igus offers energy supply systems that safely guide energy and data in telescopic work platforms and cherry pickers. Such equipment is constantly in motion and has to function reliably in difficult ambient conditions as well as under high levels of stress and at high speeds.
The igus readychain system covers harnessed, tailor-made energy chain systems. The "Plug & Play" solutions are configured, manufactured and delivered according to individual customer specifications.
All interfaces and attachments are designed in such a way that the installation of the e-chain® can be managed quickly and easily. The complete package includes the matching connectors and connections, plates, sensor actuator boxes, linear bearings, links to the central lubrication, hydraulic hoses, etc., all reducing the installation time considerably.
Maintenance and installation service is also available from igus®. We install the system with system guarantee and also offer the possibility of predictive maintenance.
igus smart plastics supplies products with different isense sensors, the evaluation module icom and icom. plus, that measure operating states, announce necessary maintenance measures and also stop operation before any greater damage to equipment can occur.
Inside the booms of the cherry pickers, completely harnessed energy chain systems from igus ensure safe guidance of the control cable and hydraulic hoses. These are 100 percent tested beforehand at igus.
This work platform is usually used in underground mining. Hitherto, hoses and cables were hanging loose and could easily get caught and be damaged.
This vehicle was specially designed for the transport of wind turbine blades.
A versatile utility vehicle used in underground mining, which is needed for maintenance work in various areas.
These drilling and pile-driving machines are used, for example, in railway construction to set the concrete piles for the electrical lines.
