In the area of bulk handling, equipment must function under tough and dirty conditions and work reliably even in bad weather. igus® offers plastic components for bulk handling technology that make exactly that possible and are characterised by their robustness and long service life. These include energy chains, cables and hoses, which are used for example in bucket-wheel excavators, ship loaders, portal scrapers, wagon tipplers, conveyor belts, lifts, silos and funnels. The igus® Project Engineering Team will assist you with the sizing, design, the construction, the project management, the reconstruction, the installation and the commissioning on site. You can find references to mining, raw materials such as ore, coal, fertiliser, road salt and food bulk materials on our homepage.

Compared to previously installed festoon systems, the 5050RHD series e-chain systems® now reduce the required cable lengths and save installation space. The 5050RHD series is used in the large lignite excavator in the Czech Republic. The travels amount to 615 m.
Series 5050R energy chains, CFCrane chainflex® cables and fibre optic cables are used in ship unloaders at a modern coal-fired power plant in Malaysia. All energy chains are completely equipped with stainless steel guide troughs and withstand weather conditions.
