Our polymer energy chains are already in use in many hundreds of thousands of applications around the world - from automatic beverage machines to CNC machines and steelworks. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for a wide varieties of industries and manufacturing sectors. It has a modular design and is therefore easy to assemble. Here, you can design the right energy chain for your application!
The term 'energy chain' or 'e-chain' is closely related to the terms 'drag chain' and 'energy supply chain'. The energy chain is a product that safely transports cables along a certain distance. They are primarily used for machines where the guided cables and hoses can be moved a certain distance without being damaged to such an extent that a machine shutdown is brought about. The energy chain is a safe way of moving energy and data cables or media hoses over this distance.
There are different types and versions of energy chains to meet different requirements. For example, there are completely enclosed versions that withstand external influences such as dirt or swarf and still guarantee the function of the machine. Variants specifically designed for several directions of movement, such as on robots, are also common, as are special materials that prevent electrostatic charging.
