The right material for each chemical. The energy chains and guide trough systems made from igumid EG+ material are resistant to chemicals and corrosion-free. They are more cost-effective compared to systems made from conventional stainless steels such as 304 and 316 grades. Depending on the area of application, aluminium guide troughs may also be sufficient.
For applications in electroplating technology, we recommend tough chainflex cables that are resistant to chemicals and abrasion. With a 36-month guarantee
With our ready-to-connect readychain energy supply system, you can reduce the installation effort to a minimum, save installation time and reduce machine downtime.
Optionally, we recommend the use of predictive maintenance. This enables you to extend the maintenance intervals of your plant, save several thousand euros and reduce failure or downtime costs.
Guidance systems made of metal have known weaknesses: corrosion, complex assembly, high weight and cost. The Guidelite-plus-EG guide trough material ensures high chemical resistance, making it ideal for use in electroplating and fertiliser production. Due to their lightweight and modular design, assembly is significantly simplified.
E4/4 series energy chains and plastic guide trough made of the chemical-resistant material igumid EG+ are used in the pre-treatment line of the hot galvanising plants of the company Wiegel.
So far it has become clear that the energy chains from igus are working well and reliably at Wiegel. "The experience gained since 2015 shows that the use of an acid-resistant energy chain in the area of the pretreatment line for energy and signal transmission was the right decision," says Ronny Horn, project manager at Meissner Krane.
"Our machines and systems are mostly used in the electroplating industry," explains Oliver Fechner, Dipl. Ing. (FH), in charge of Design & Development, for the extremely tough ambient conditions. "Therefore, on the one hand, our machines must be corrosion-free and on the other hand, the chains and cables must be extremely robust. Our machines are in fully-automatic operation in print shops, seven days a week, around the clock. Reliability is therefore crucial for us. "
