Igus has introduced a range of products for port cranes at the TOC Europe in Bremen.

The P4 energy-chain system is available in two sizes: P4.32 and P4.42.

The P4.42 (42mm inner height) is made for demanding crane applications: high speeds up to 10 m/s, long travels up to 800m and high filling weights up to 10 kg/m.

The P4.32 (32mm inner height) has been developed in a lighter, slimmer design for high speeds when the installation space is limited.

Upper run and lower run are rolling offset over each other.

Though the plastic profile rolls are not completely parallel, they roll on a wide surface, increasing the lifetime of the chain.

The pitch of the chain link is equal for links both with and without rollers, so that the energy chain has low noise and vibration levels in operation.

The rollers are fixed into the chain’s side links, while the auto-glide cross bars are made of tribologically optimised plastic.

A trough system ensures the energy chain runs safely.

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.
