These three cranes are used to transport containers with liquid metal in a casting house. Each of the cranes has a loadbearing capacity of 100 tonnes. The hot environment coupled with an extremely heavy soiling on the crane caused by mould sand, graphite and metallic dusts presents a huge challenge to the energy chains in this case. Due to the use of igus® rol e-chains® an always failure-free run has been realised in this rough environment.
