No more downtimes

Bucket wheel reclaimer

With this shovel loader, the structure can be rotated by +/-180°. The energy supply also needs to follow this movement. Using plastic e-chains® significantly increased service life and reliability. As even after two years, the steel chain previously used between the rotary tables broke down. The consequences were a damaged chain, broken cables and long downtime and maintenance time. After changing to a 18.5 metre long igus®e-chain® with rotating energy supply RBR and chainflex® cables the system now runs reliably, without maintenance or downtime. In addition, more than half of the weight was saved – a further advantage, as the cables in the e-chain® alone weigh 54 kilograms per metre. The jury therefore decided to honour this solution with the silver vector.
