Energy supply

Pretty corrosive!

pwirth | 9. September 2020

The harsh environment of electroplating plants makes cables and energy supply systems a challenge. The answer from igus: energy chains and guide troughs made of the chemical-resistant, high-performance polymer igumid EG+ and tough chainflex cables. The rim of a sports car flashes in the sun. No wonder, it is covered with chrome plating. The door […]

Energy chains in the work area

mkogelmann | 30. June 2020

Energy chains in the work area What used to be normal (energy chains in the working area) is now largely avoided. However, some applications cannot be implemented otherwise. Hot or sharp-edged swarf can quickly impair the function of an energy supply system. Regardless of whether the swarf damages the cables or swarf clusters minimise the […]

Insert energy chain on the side

mkogelmann | 5. May 2020

The installation space for energy chains is often limited in height. One solution, although not always practical, is then to reduce the bend radius of the energy chain. But this is not always possible. Either the reduction of the bend radius is not sufficient for the chain to fit into the installation space, or it […]

Designing more cost-effectively with E4.1L

Michael Hornung | 23. April 2020

Especially in machine tools, many electrical cables and hoses run through the energy chain. Hoses for hydraulics and cooling with large diameters are often necessary to meet the requirements of flow rates. This means that designers must select energy chains with a large interior space.
