Laying cables correctly for pivoting movements

mkogelmann | 26. March 2020

For pivoting and rotary movements of up to 270°, it is important that cables and hoses are laid in the energy chain’s neutral phase. Why is this so important? Pivoting and rotary movements usually involve winding up the e-chain or guiding it into an S shape. For normal installation positions (horizontal, standing, or suspended), the […]


Energy chains for indoor cranes with two trolleys
