ReadyChain rack  

1: Everything from a single source
The readychain® system covers pre-assembled, customized energy chain systems. The 'plug in and ready' solutions are configured, manufactured and delivered according to individual customer specifications. The use of the mounting rack starts to yield benefits even at low volumes.
2: Flexible components
The telescoping supports and braces of the readychain® rack allow flexible adaptation to the installation situation on site. Changes in mass production can be undertaken easily any time. By the latching mechanism, additional components can also be easily attached to the rack subsequently.
3: Sustainable use
The components of the readychain® rack's are galvanized and thus designed for a long service life. Each rack is constructed within a few hours. The individual elements can be reused at any time in other racks and must therefore not be disposed of after the end of the series like conventional, welded transport racks.

Reduce your storage costs to zero

With our quick and guaranteed delivery times, you can completely avoid having to keep continuous-flex cables, connectors and other cable carrier accessories in stock.

Cut your waiting times by half

Due to a finely-tuned logistics division, igus® supplies ready-to-install systems within 3-10 days almost anywhere in the world.

Respond flexibly to order variations

Economic highs and lows are no problem if you choose readychain® pre-harnessed systems. Let us worry about how much or how little you need to order.

Minimize machine downtimes

Little things may cause big problems. Buying numerous machine components from multiple vendors not only increases the risk of machine failure in your plant, but it also complicates trouble-shooting. With readychain® every system is quality checked before delivery. igus® is ISO 9001 certified.

Reduce the number of suppliers and orders by 75%

One order - one invoice - one delivery - one partner. Don't worry about looking for numerous machine components from numerous suppliers. We have the knowledge to provide you with an optimum cable carrier system for your automated machinery.
