Automotive electronics moved safely with energy chains

Electrically controlled functions in passenger cars, commercial and special vehicles are becoming increasingly complex. If damage occurs to the power and signal cables, the function of the vehicle suffers and the reputation of the manufacturer is also at stake. Our energy supply systems protect your moving cables. They are used in electric sliding doors, seat adjusters and boot lids. In doing so, they are geared to meet the latest requirements: not only do they fulfil the task of guiding cables through countless cycles in confined installation spaces, they are also light and quiet - important criteria in the age of electro-mobility and in the new interior.

Advantages of igus e-chains:

  • Cost-effective
  • Lightweight and quiet
  • Cable-friendly
  • Easy to fit
  • Long predictable service life
  • Individual adaptation (to weight and load) possible
  • Certified according to IATF 16949

Space-saving and safe cable guidance

Products for the future car interior

Autonomous delivery vans, self-driving vans and conference shuttles with movable furniture: this is what the interiors of the future may look like, with more electrically moving components, efficiently used in confined spaces. Our e-chains and bearing technology ensure that the movement works reliably, quietly and unobtrusively.
