Change now: motion plastics® from igus® – simply last longer!

Corrosion-free, robust and reliable

igus® e-chains® are already in use today in tens of thousands of applications – They guide and protect cables and hoses on oil platforms, in steelworks and in other heavy machinery. They have a modular design and are therefore easy to install. They are media-friendly and suitable for large, heavy and stiff cables and hoses. Our e-chains® withstand hot chips with temperatures up to +850° C .
 
Many arguments speak for the use of energy chains of high-performance plastics for moving applications, particularly in the heavy-duty area.

Application examples for heavy duty

Bucket wheel excavator

Energy chain system e-loop is used in the bucket wheel excavator of Holcim for cement production.

Energy chain in open-air storage facility for alumina production

Design and installation of a roller energy chain for outdoor use on a bauxite stockpile - an environment with extremely harsh ambient conditions.

Casting implements for car rims

Automotive wheels are manufactured here using the gravity die casting process.

Zinc electrolysis, bathing halls

The sulfur fumes generated by the electrolysis are highly corrosive and corrode the customer's system. igus® products withstand these extreme conditions.
