Fast commissioning

Joachim Grandy, BSH Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH

"Only 24 hours passed between ordering, delivery and installation. And since its installation, the system has functioned without any problems at all!"

Extreme conditions on site

Dipl.-Ing. Werner Kretzinger, AVA Abfallverwertung Augsburg GmbH

"Though they have been in operation for over two years, they haven't shown any sign of wear at all so far."

e-chain® product finder

In order to find the suitable e-chain® for the application, specifications can be made here by which the ideal product is found. From the required width, height, bending radius, filling weight, up to clean room suitability and other features, the result can be very much limited. The properties of individual chains can then be compared.
