Safely guide control devices

Cost effective energy supply system for crane carriages and indoor cranes

control devices  

Directly mounted on crane girder Compact design Usable for all kinds of control devices for very different functions. Free choice of cables with regard to number of cores and cross section. Smallest bend radii of down to 5 x d possible with chainflex® cables. With a 36 months guarantee*. Easy to move due to maintenance-free xiros® polymer ball bearings in the guide carriage.

guidefast  

Quickly mounted as construction kit solution: The guidefast guide trough is attached to the side of the crane girder. In case of installation on crane girders one can omit the welding of brackets. Installation times are kept very short, as the guide trough only needs to be mounted in the previously fixed brackets and then fixed with the clamping blocks. The small amount of various components and the fixed trough width also contribute to a simple installation.

igus® energy chain system® pre-installed on the crane girder

 

Whether single girder or double girder crane, roller or box girder section cranes, as well as overhead travelling, ceiling or boom cranes, igus® offers the ideal energy supply solution for all requirements with flexible chainflex® cables as an alternative to bus bars, festooning or motor drum. The space-saving igus® energy chain system® made of high-performance plastics for the cross travel can be easily and safely mounted either directly on the crane girder or on top of it. The cable junction is eliminated by an igus® energy chain system®. The entire girder length can be used for the travel of the trolley. The end of the girder is also the end of the energy chain system®. The entire area of the hall is accessible to the crane. Cable festoons cannot get tangled, all cables are safely conducted with a defined bending radius in the energy chain®.

igus® offers the ideal energy supply solution even for the crane track. Advantages for long travel applications with igus® e-chains®. Rolling instead of gliding, igus® roller e-chains® significantly reduce the drive power for moving the energy chain®. Travels up to 800 m are possible. We will be happy to configure your application free of charge and work out the most cost effective igus® solution, taking into account technical requirements and operational reliability.
