Solutions for the cement industry

In the building materials industry, the cement industry plays an important part while acting as a successful driver in the entire building sector. In the modern industrial society, cement is indispensable as a part of concrete. Without cement as a binding agent, long-lasting industrial, residential and office buildings as well as resilient infrastructures would not be built. Low maintenance times and the material's high durability play an important part in the manufacturing of cement in cement plants. Specially developed high-performance polymers enable the use of igus e-chains in nearly all areas. No matter what the requirements are: with igus you always provide the optimal solution, as our materials do without steel or similar metals.The benefits at a glance:

  • Cost-effective, modular design
  • Durability with low maintenance
  • Resistant to dirt, chemicals and high temperatures
  • Very lightweight with high stability
  • Corrosion-free
  • TÜV tested

Application examples of our customers

Aggressive environment

This application works despite harsh ambient conditions. Highest temperatures, rust, dust or moisture do not affect the e-chains from igus in any way. They ensure reliable and space-saving guidance of the cables over the entire length of the facility.

Porous concrete hardening

Travel of 50 metres

A concrete container is being moved over a length of 50 metres within a production hall. The challenges arise from the building material which, depending on the given state, generates dust or moisture. e-chains successfully replace conductor rails, which always caused short circuits.

Insensitive to dust and moisture

No more downtime

A concrete plant cannot afford machine downtime, as immense costs arise until the machine is repaired. Such situations can be remedied with control cables by chainflex, which significantly increase service life.

Manufacturing of concrete

Tested for use in the real world

The largest test lab for moving cables on 2,750m2


The media resistance of e-chains and cables is tested.
