Construction equipment

Improve technology and reduce costs with maintenance-free components

igus®' plastic bushings, spherical bearings, linear guides, cable carriers, and continuous-flex cables both improve technology and reduce costs for construction equipment manufacturers.

Cables and hoses are putting under a great amount of stress in this environment and are subjected to a high level of dirt, so it's important that they're properly protected. energy chain® cable carriers not only protect from dirt and dust, but they also reduce wear for tunnel boring machines, excavators, road construction equipment, and more.
