The service life of an energy chain depends on many factors, including the fill weight, the dynamic values, the length of the travel and the technical environment – as well as the external influences of dirt and contamination. In order to calculate an exact service life, igus has developed a service life calculator . The data fed into this tool come from the industry’s largest test laboratory, which covers an area of 3,800 m2; the experience gained from thousands of applications all round the world also goes into the tool.

Service life calculation is available for selected energy chains but is being extended continuously.
