Harnessed energy chains: readychain® application examples

Ready-to-install energy supply systems for automation

Where the automation of machines and industrial plants are concerned, there is a whole series of different reasons to decide in favour of harnessed energy supply systems. readychain harnessed energy chains are being used in many industrial areas such as the timber industry, the textile industry, measuring system technology and special machine construction.
With pre-assembled energy supply systems for automation, manufacturing costs are reduced and sources of faults are practically ruled out. Less project planning work is needed whereas reliability increases. Possible uses are in the areas of assembly/installation engineering and handling technology, in conveyor technology or in mechanical engineering.
