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:
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.
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.
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.
