Freedom for 8 years from maintenance in this facility led to a saving of about € 25,000

The igus® energy chains introduced in 2000 still runs smoothly and only now it is reconditioned. So far the customers have had no additional costs here.
Furthermore, 7 cranes are equipped with copper rails. The itemization of the hitherto maintenance costs shows the following result:

Material costs for coals and other spare parts in the last 7 years: EURO 260/month/crane

Labor costs (estimated) in the last 7 years: EURO 40/month/crane

=> In total: EURO 25,200 maintenance expenses with conductor line compared to 0 with igus® per system.
