Energy supply systems from a single source


Reasons for a harnessed energy chain

For the production of machines and equipment, there are many good reasons to decide in favour of pre-harnessed energy supply systems:
 

  • Harnessing time is reduced by up to 95%
  • Reduction in manufacturing costs
  • Minimal amount of logistics work – no storage space necessary
  • Procurement optimisation - one system, one part number
  • Reduce assembly time – less machine downtime
  • On-site installation - international service with 35 subsidiaries
  • Special designs are possible – igus is developing further components
