Stainless steel roller bearings as standard

Improved Low-Noise Version available

6 dB(A) lower noise through improved roller and link geometry

Further noise reduction through optimized guide through

rol e-chain®, rolling, not gliding

Traditional energy chains operating over long distances generally "gliding". rol e-chain® has been developed with the aim of pushing back the technical limits of this kind of operation. The demands placed on energy chains used over long distances have continuously increased in recent years. Travel over several hundred meters sets new challenges, as do extreme crane movement speeds at cable loads of up to 34 lbs/ft.

7 Benefits of the rol e-chains®

Strong reduction of the driving force required for moving the energy chain to below 25%

Travels up to 2,625 ft possible

Possible speeds of up to 1,969 ft/min

Different types of rollers for optimum results in different situations

Even rolling resistance for dirty applications

Available as ready-to-fit, made-to-specifications system

System guarantee for made-to-specifications system (depends on application)

crane energy solution Travel lengths of up to 394 ft "on the drum" have already been successfully supplied, which means drastic savings in assembly times and costs.
