1: Everything from a single source
The readychain® system covers preassembled, customised energy chain systems. The 'plug in and ready' solutions are configured, manufactured and delivered according to individual customer specifications. The use of the mounting rack starts to yield benefits even at low volumes.
2: Flexible components
The telescoping supports and braces of the readychain® rack allow flexible adaptation to the installation situation on site. Changes in mass production can be undertaken easily any time. By the latching mechanism, additional components can also be easily attached to the rack subsequently.
3: Sustainable use
The components of the readychain® rack are galvanised and thus designed for a long service life. Each rack is constructed within a few hours. The individual elements can be reused at any time in other racks and must therefore not be disposed of after the end of the series like conventional, welded transport racks.

Reduces your storage costs to zero for cables, e-chain® and connectors

By our quick and guaranteed delivery times, you can entirely avoid the storage of highly flexible cables, associated plugs and possibly other mounting parts.

Cuts your running time by half

Thanks to sophisticated logistics, igus® is able to supply complete systems within 1-10 days of the guaranteed deadline to almost any part of the world.

Minimize machine down times

Little things may cause big problems. Buying numerous single parts not only increases the risk of failure of your plants, it also complicates trouble-shooting. You obtain a system solution along with readychain®. Every system is checked before delivery at our test stands. igus® is certified according to ISO 9001.

Reduce the number of suppliers and orders by 75%

One order - one invoice - one delivery - one partner. You no longer need to procure countless individual components from a host of subcontractors; we know how to acquire the right parts quickly and economically.
