I am familiar with the energy chains from igus and know the dimensions and kinds of movement of my energy supply system.
I know the ambient variables of my application and, working in comfort online, I would like to configure my energy chain or consult an expert about an individual project.
Energy chains (also called energy supply chains, e-chains) are mechanical machine elements. They are used to guide and protect energy, data and signals that have to withstand the most diverse environmental influences. The decisive fact about cable guides is the symbiosis of the components moving against each other. They include cables, hoses, interior separation elements, strain relief devices and guide troughs.
The materials used have to be optimally matched to each other so that maximum operating times and a long service life are achieved. Thanks to energy chains, downtime is avoided wherever energy in the form of electricity, gas, air or fluids is supplied to moving loads.
autoglide 5 is the alternative to the busbar. It transfers energy, data, fluids and air safely in a single system, is almost maintenance-free and is also cost-effective in terms of price.
▲Tech up:often avoids the need for two or more other systems to transmit data. 4m/s speed and 80m travel
▼Cost down: 88% shorter installation time compared to aluminium troughs.
The new CRM rotary module is lighter and more compact than stationary guide troughs. It allows a rotation angle of up to 6480° and requires minimal installation space.
▲Tech up:no slip ring Small installation space, very low profile.
▼Cost down: cost-effective if repairs are needed.
The freely fillable, particle-free cable guide system 'e-skin flat single pods' consists of individual cable chambers that can be connected to each other. One or more cables can be put into these chambers.
▲Tech up:especially compact design. 9 dB(A) quieter than the "clean cable" that is currently available on the market.
▼Cost down: fast filling. 20% more cost-effective than the "clean cable" that is currently available on the market.
The e-loop is an alternative to the service loop. Ideally suited for 3-dimensional applications on drilling rigs, offshore and for construction machines, wind turbines and shore power facilities.
▲Tech up:modular system, easy to open No parts can be lost thanks to optional screw locking devices.
▼Cost down: simple maintenance. Mounting brackets for easy and fast installation.
The e-spool flex 2.0 is the igus version of a cable drum without a slip ring. Cable diameters from 5mm up to 15mm can be used.
▲Tech up:interruption-free (no slip ring), also for electric current, data, fluids and air. Space-saving.
▼Cost down: easy replacement of the cable that is used, therefore adaptable. Cost-effective if repairs are necessary
Are you interested in our energy chain but would like to see it yourself first before making a final decision?
Then you are welcome to order a free sample from us.
Our e-chain is already being used reliably in many hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide - from automatic beverage machines and CNC machines to steelworks. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for the most varied of industries. It has a modular design and is therefore easy to assemble. Completely media-friendly and designed for very small bend radii, igus chains are suitable for small installation spaces as well as for large, heavy and rigid cables or hoses.
Our ready-to-connect harnessed energy chains reduce the number of purchasing options, parts list items, number of contact persons and the amount of installation effort to the absolute minimum. This avoids unnecessary storage space and waste of resources. They create optimal interfaces and increase your competitive advantage. They optimise your supply chain for energy chains, cables, connectors, hoses, hydraulics, pneumatics, steel parts, sensors, PLC, bearings, linear guides and other machine components.
Our energy chains can be adapted to individual requirements and can therefore be used for a large number of different applications.
"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."
