The basis for all service life calculations
To determine the service life of its products, igus puts them through their paces under the most adverse conditions, up to failure, in its 3,800-square-metre laboratory. The result is 10 billion e-chain cycles per year.
Using the data from the test laboratory, the e-chain service life calculator determines the operating time of the igus standard energy chains in specific applications. Over 4,000 tests and more than 7,500 results flow into the online tool. More tests are performed every day in the endeavour to deliver more precise statements about the service life. Therefore, igus is the only supplier in the world to offer a 36 month guarantee on their energy chains.
