Energy chains and cables for long service life of crane systems

chains for cranes: with the right energy chain, a coordinated and reliable solution can be found for every application scenario. Heavy loads, long travels and extreme weather conditions are just a few challenges for crane systems: where deadlines are still tight and safety must always be guaranteed, e-chains are a reliable alternative to busbar systems, festooning and motor drums with less maintenance and noise. Whether indoors or at the port, for bulk goods or container handling - all our products have been developed according to one motto: tech up, cost down!
