Scope of the guarantee

The guarantee claim of each status level is limited by the period from the date of purchase or the covered double strokes of the machine, whichever is reached first. In case of guarantee we immediately replace the cable piece goods.

Sales of the piece goods is calculated as annual turnover, which is included in all deliveries. This includes Chainflex® piece goods and Chainflex® piece goods that were installed in ReadyCable® and ReadyChain® products. Copper values are not taken into account. The gold and silver status expires when the annual turnover threshold is not met, due to missing certification, or by written termination of program participation.

The annual re-certification is conducted from December 1st through January 31st. This program is voluntary and provides the customer with a guarantee on Chainflex® cables in the current catalog product range. With respect to time, even the shortest igus® guarantee period exceeds the statutory minimum guarantee period, which is limited to only 12 months.

Implementation procedure

After purchasing Chainflex® Motion Cables®, our customers are visited by our sales team. When there is interest, participation in the program is simple. Our sales consultants can immediately issue the orange guarantee status. The customer then has immediate access to the guarantee coverage. Our sales consultants document the transaction into our IT system on-site. In order to document the guarantee statement for the customer, the customer is immediately given the certificate and the desired number of guarantee stickers for his machine. More stickers are available from us on request.

Annually, the turnover is determined for program. Attaining the respective turnover thresholds allows reaching a new status level.

When there is interest for attaining the silver or gold status level, this requires certifying the assembly and design-engineering staff. This certification includes a detailed discussion of cable routing practices in an Energy Chain®. The applications are reviewed and necessary improvements are proposed. The certification is free of charge for the customer and must be completed as a training measure.
