The world's first energy chain system with its own drive, now almost wear-free with a linear motor. For very long travel distances (1,000m and more) with extreme dynamics and long operating times. For next-generation ASCs (automated stacking cranes). The lower mass allows higher acceleration and speed, and the drive-chain 2.0 also offers a much longer service life than do standard energy chain systems.
Version with motor cable drum. Approximately four to six tons of weight, which must be carried permanently and costs drive force.
Version with igus drive-chain. e-chain system with its own drive force. Higher speeds and longer travels possible.
Discover different energy chain systems for long travels that can be moved up to 1,000 metres and more, at a speed of 10m/s and a fill weight of 50kg/m.
Energy chain systems and flexible cables are used in cranes. They have proven themselves for years in over 10,000 igus® energy chain solutions in ports with their corrosion-free, maintenance-free materials offering a long service life.
Triple E-class container ships and the requirements of energy supply for STS cranes
An exceptionally space-saving solution has been developed for the energy supply system of a fully automatic crane system, which has proven itself under the highest loads and in continuous operation - and which today creates 50 percent more storage space.
A roller energy chain is in operation at one of the largest bulk handling ports in Western Europe. On the massive ship-to-shore crane, it operates without incident despite continuous operation and over 100 metres of travel.
