Long travels of 1,000 metres and more
It is a great challenge for operators of sewage plants, waste incineration plants, cranes, power plants or mines to guide data, energy and hydraulics safely on long travels. High speeds combined with a high fill weight often pose problems for energy supply systems such as motor cable drums, busbars or festoonings.
Energy chain systems by igus can be moved without problems on travels of up to 1,000 metres and more at a speed of 10m/s and with 50kg/m fill weight. As guide of highly flexible chainflex cables and hoses, energy chains can be guided smoothly and with low friction in long travels through guide troughs and enclosures. Both in- and outdoors, they energy chain systems by igus have been successfully used for more than 20 years in over 30,000 gliding long travels.
The igus Project Engineering Team will assist you with the sizing, design, project management, installation and commissioning on site. For the intelligent monitoring of the state of your system, igus isense sensors and monitoring modules can be used to measure the abrasion of the energy chain, push/pull forces and accelerations as well as to perform real-time monitoring.
