energy chains (also called energy supply systems, drag chains and cable carriers) are mechanical machine elements used to guide and protect energy, data, signals and fluids together in one system, whilst withstanding the most diverse environmental conditions.
Energy supply systems work best when all elements - cables, hoses, interior separation elements, strain relief devices and guide troughs – are designed to work together. At igus® we optimise the design and materials of all these elements to offer the longest possible service life – guaranteed.

Overview of how to specify your complete energy supply system using igus® tools.
Configure complete energy chain supply systems for short or long travel as well as for hanging applications.
Our energy chains are modular and therefore can 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."
