Advantages of polymer e-chains

When supplying energy to machines, high additional loads, accuracy and high temperatures are important. In injection moulding machines, extruders or blow moulding machines, polymer energy chains guide and protect the cables and hoses. Even with heavy fillings, polymer e-chains have their advantages:

  • High fill weights possible
  • Circular and pivoting movements possible
  • Use at high temperatures
  • Resistant to dust, powder deposits and moisture
  • Space-saving

With cost-effective automation solutions and smart plastics, igus also addresses the key topic Plastic Industry 4.0 and system integration.
