Where the automation of machines and industrial plants are concerned, there is a whole series of different reasons to decide in favour of harnessed energy supply systems. readychain harnessed energy chains are being used in many industrial areas such as the timber industry, the textile industry, measuring system technology and special machine construction.
With pre-assembled energy supply systems for automation, manufacturing costs are reduced and sources of faults are practically ruled out. Less project planning work is needed whereas reliability increases. Possible uses are in the areas of assembly/installation engineering and handling technology, in conveyor technology or in mechanical engineering.
In this igus® magazine you will find numerous possibilities and application examples of how you can bring your tech up and/or cost down with ready-to-install energy chain systems.
At Thyssen Krupp's Duisburg hot rolling mill, a slab transport crane has been fitted with pre-assembled roller energy chains for the energy supply system. They work reliably under adverse environmental conditions such as heat and dust.
