Shop e-chain® cable carriers for rotary & spiral movement

Turning 7,000 degrees in a horizontal orientation while safely and reliably guiding energy, data, liquids, gases, oils and light is something not many energy supplies for circular movements are able to do. Here, once again, the energy chain underscores its versatility and modular design. It doesn't always have to be 7,000 degrees. twisterchain offers solutions from the standard modular system for circular movements of up to 400 degrees with large cable loads.
