igus Engineering Service:
everything from a single source

Customer-specific solutions

Tech up, Cost down: we take the difficulty out of even the most complex energy supply systems.

Conversion or new installation – special solutions do not need to be expensive. With more than 20 years of experience in project work and more than 1,000 projects each year, we have a rich modular system that makes it very easy for us to assemble customer-specific solutions. Our focus during these efforts is always avoiding over-engineering. We consistently develop technically precise solutions at the best price. If our customers want, we add installation and maintenance service and an individual guarantee. ​

igus project engineering – from the first sketch to installation and on-site commissioning

Conversion project or new development – we provide you with on-site support

Whether you are working with an initial design or modernising an existing system, igus specialists will give you on-site or remote assistance. Our goal: Tech up, Cost down. It's our job. You receive a free design.
On-site measuring

Project planning and quotation phase

If you find our design attractive, we will work out further details with you. We will discuss all necessary solution components: accessory parts and services. We will use this basis to quote a fixed price. ​
Engineering offer phase

Project phase

Our project team prepares detailed drawings with all components and interfaces. Once they are approved, work begins in our 32,000m² production plant. The energy supply system is assembled precisely for shipment, with all its components and attachments, ready to connect, including documentation. ​
Engineering project phase

Delivery and assembly

The pre-assembled energy supply system is now delivered to its place of use, where your fitters can install it – with the assistance of an igus supervisor, if you wish. Or our igus installation service can take over installation and commissioning. ​More about our after-sales services here.

Alternative energy supply systems from igus

e-chain vs. festooning

Energy chains systems instead of festooning

Protect cables and energy chains from wind and fluctuating temperatures and guide them safely. This minimises downtime.
e-chain vs. busbar system

Energy chain systems instead of busbar systems

Reliable data, energy, fluid, and air guidance in one energy chain system. For narrow compact spaces and fast lane movement.
e-chain vs. motor cable drum

Energy chain systems instead of motor cable drums

Long travels (up to 1,200 metres) with no slip ring. Guide all media safely and compactly in one system.

An overview of our project history

From a driving simulator in 1992 to a record energy chain travel in a Czech lignite power plant in 2007 to high-speed RBR in a multi-spindle lathe in 2020:
