Compact energy chains in Alzmetall machining centres

For tight bend radii at high travel speeds, the GS series uses our e-chains


  • What was needed: undefined from igus consisting of undefined and associated undefined, undefined
  • Requirements: High travel speeds and accelerations, compact installation situation requires narrow bend radii, continuous load
  • Industry: Machine tool manufacturing
  • Success for the customer: The E4/4 light energy chain offers exceptionally compact external dimensions and is at the same time particularly robustly built; the readychain system saves assembly time and costs and makes installation considerably easier for the customer.

"For the GS 800, we used pre-assembled "readychain" cable packages and energy chains from igus for the first time. The cooperation has proven successful, so the GS 650 will also be equipped with "readychain" energy supply systems."
