Aerial lifts, telescopic boom platforms and cherry pickers offer very little space for the safe travel of energy, which is why so many engineers turn to e-chain® cable carriers made of high-performance plastics, or a plastic-steel hybrid, from igus to protect their moving cables and hoses. igus® spare parts for guidance, transmission and bearing systems in telescopic lifting work platforms such as energy chains or drag chains, cables and supply lines as well as plastic plain bearings, linear bearings or sliding plates meet the harsh conditions of outdoor and permanently stressed devices.
e-chains® from igus® provide special cable protection against wear when the telescopic arms are cyclically retracted and extended at different lifting speeds.
igus® self-lubricating plastic plain bearings, sliding plates in telescopic work platforms can be more cost-effective and durable than metallic solutions and are designed to work without lubrication.
Inside the booms of the cherry pickers, completely harnessed energy chain systems from igus ensure safe guidance of the control cable and hydraulic hoses. These are 100 percent tested beforehand at igus.
This work platform is usually used in underground mining. Hitherto, hoses and cables were hanging loose and could easily get caught and be damaged.
This vehicle was specially designed for the transport of wind turbine blades.
A versatile utility vehicle used in underground mining, which is needed for maintenance work in various areas.
These drilling and pile-driving machines are used, for example, in railway construction to set the concrete piles for the electrical lines.
This redesign allows the execution of several different steps in tunnelling with one device.
with E4Q opening mechanism: adapt e-chain® individually to hose diameter. Installed easily without tools and replaces hoses as needed. By using extender crossbars instead of crossbars, the interior space of the e-chain® can be enormously enlarged, allowing large suction hoses to be safely guided if required.
Proper installation is essential for the life of your cable carrier, and igus® has a team of dedicated engineers ready to assist you every step of the way. From site inspection, to installation, to complete modernization, our team will ensure the longest possible service life for your cable carrier system.
