The term building materials is used to designate materials employed in the construction of houses or other buildings. From civil engineering to structural engineering: inorganic construction materials such as concrete or cement as well as organic building materials such as wood are indispensable for every construction project. The wide range of production processes employed in the construction sector makes it possible to use a great variety of building materials. In dry construction, for example, industrial bar stock are bundled and fixed using screws. In doing so, aqueous building materials such as clay or concrete are dispensed with. Specially developed high-performance plastics enable the use of igus e-chains in nearly all areas.
Moisture, dirt, swarf, heat, cold; we have the best possible solution for every requirement and in our materials we dispense completely with building materials such as steel and other metals. In heavy-duty areas, steel systems are increasingly being replaced by igus e-chains due to their greater suitability.
This will take you to the online shops for the e-chain products for special heavy-duty application cases and those involving long travels.
A concrete container is being moved over a length of 50 metres within a production hall. The challenges arise from the building material which, depending on the given state, generates dust or moisture. e-chains successfully replace conductor rails, which always caused short circuits.
This application works despite harsh ambient conditions. Highest temperatures, rust, dust or moisture do not affect the e-chains from igus in any way. They ensure reliable and space-saving guidance of the cables over the entire length of the facility.
In a brick factory, severe contamination is caused by abrasive brisk dust. Series 5050 e-chains guarantee a travel of 20 metres for long-term maintenance-free operation.
In this shelving system for concrete blocks, e-chains from igus have successfully replaced a cable reel. Potential travel speeds and the cost-effective price speak for themselves.
