Energy chains from cable carrier specialist Igus UK are designed to accommodate cables and hoses in many different types of applications, ranging from small printers to large offshore cranes.

The chains are modular and therefore can be assembled quickly and easily to accommodate any length of travel, which enables engineers to save installation time.

Igus tests the chains against the environmental elements, high loads, high speeds and loud noise. Engineers requiring equipment with low noise levels can find e-chains that measure as little as 33dB(A) that are claimed to deliver a smooth operation even in fast-moving applications.

Key features and benefits

  • Long travels of e-chains can run unsupported for lengths of up to 150m
  • Long service lives are ensured
  • Modular design enables short assembly times
  • The e-chains are said to be cost effective
  • They offer a safe and secure way to manage cables

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
