Energy chains for circular and spiral movements

Turning 7,000 degrees in a horizontal orientation while safely and reliably guiding energy, data, liquids, gases, oils and light - no problem for our energy chain. The new generation of twisterchain is 25% lighter than its predecessor and even more robust and quieter, with a rotation speed of up to 1m/s and more. Due to properties such as modularity, versatility and a high degree of stability, we guarantee absolute stability.  
Typical industries and applications: handling machines, robots, packaging machines...

Energy chains for circular and spiral movements  


twisterchain, new

twisterchain – new generation

Current generation

Tough, quiet, for high loads, can turn up to 540°

  • Inner height: 28 to 56mm
  • Crossbars openable along inner radius
  • Stronger; higher fill weights possible
  • 25% less weight that the previous twisterchain
  • Highly dynamic and quieter running (with new trough)
  • Smooth cable-friendly interior
  • Successfully tested for over 1 million cycles in the igus® laboratory
  • Rotary speeds of up to 1m/s and more, rotary/spiral movements up to 540° (360° from stock)



Predecessor model of the twisterchain, new

Circular and spiral movements

  • Inner height: 28 to 56mm
  • Openable along inner and outer radius
  • Classic version


Up to 7,000° rotary movements in the most confined of spaces

  • Inner height: 9 to 22mm
  • Rotary speeds of up to 180°/s possible
  • Minimum installation space, fits very closely around the rotary axis
  • Cost-effective and easy to fill
  • Can be reliably used in various installation positions (horizontal, vertical upside down)

twisterband HD

twisterband HD  
Rotary movements in the most confined of spaces, now even stronger
