Maintenance-Free Parts for Aerial Lifts & Telescopic Lift Platforms

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.

Advantages of igus® products:

  • No screws
  • No loose or lost parts due to vibrations
  • No rusting and jamming
  • Cables with high UV resistance
  • No greasing of bearing points
  • Maintenance-free and self-lubricating

E4Q e-chain® with extender crossbars

Extender crossbar modular system for large diameters

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.
