igus UK is exhibiting at Offshore Europe 2013 to showcase its products specifically developed for offshore applications, such as the e-chain and chainflex continuous-flex cables. The main focus product at the show is the world’s largest plastic energy chain, the E4.350. igus invites visitors to stand 4E99, where they can meet the industry experts to discuss production innovations and see live product demonstrations.
The high-performance materials igus uses in its e-chains and bearings are specifically developed to withstand the demands of harsh industrial environments – high/low temperatures, corrosion, humidity and dirt. Conventional steel-based systems are now being replaced with igus plastic e-chains in heavy duty applications, such as offshore, primarily down to their extraordinary capabilities.
igus e-chain systems are field-proven in offshore applications; they are strong yet light in weight, resistant to corrosion and their modular design offers exceptional flexibility. e-chains are particularly well suited for use within vacuum units, oil platforms, steel mills, construction equipment and coal handling.
