Igus Energy Chains (E-Chains) are designed to control, guide and protect cables and hoses in many different types of applications, from small printers right through to offshore cranes, and from outdoor areas such as sports stadia through to clean rooms. Being modular in design, igus E-Chains can accommodate virtually any length of travel.
Made of igumid G, a specially formulated polymer material, igus E-Chains can endure a variety of environments, including high pressures and loads, wide temperature extremes and all weather conditions, as well as being resistant to abrasion, dust and chips.
The noise level of an E-Chain system is important too, so igus has developed special energy chains that measure from 33dB(A) and deliver smooth motion even in fast applications. In addition to this, igus' tests and numerous field applications prove the E-Chains are reliable for protecting cables in harsh environments.
According to igus, the advantages of its E-Chains are that they have a long service life, short assembly times due to the modular design, short delivery times and a good price/performance ratio - which, in turn, results in cost-effective, safe and secure cable guidance and protection.
