energy chains are the most modular way of safely transferring energy, data, fluids and air. Whether horizontally, vertically along all axes or in a circle. igus® energy chains fulfil this requirement completely. Various systems for rotary and spiral movements can be selected, and properties such as modularity and versatility and a high degree of stability ensure dependability.
Typical industries and applications: handling machines, robots & packaging machines
As our energy chain systems do not have slip rings, media such as air, oil or water can easily be transferred without any interruption.
The compact e-spools for two and four metre pullout are space-saving systems with small linear chains and twisterbands for a wide variety of applications where space is limited. As in the case of the larger standard and heavy-duty systems, the compact e-spool system enables problem-free transfer and flexible filling.
In a woodworking centre, the aim was to use a machine to guide tools in such a way that they followed the contours of the workpiece without problem. Many different movements with rotations around its own axis (total rotation angle of 1440°) are the consequence. The igus twisterchain was completely convincing with regard to cable guidance and weight saving.
