The classic cable management systems that have been frequently used for supplying energy within bucket wheel excavators and stacker-reclaimers can be easily replaced and retrofitted with long-lasting e-chain® cable carrier systems from igus. e-chain® cable carriers have long and predictable service life, and can be installed effieciently by our expert team of engineers.
Most rotary motions can be achieved with the RBR option. Angles of rotation up to 900° have been realized. Below is an example of rotary motion using an RBR e-chain®. Please consult igus® for your particular application.
Circular motions require less installation height. The e-chains® generally glide on surfaces made from plastics, stainless steel or steel, and are guided into a circular motion by guide channels. See "side mounted" for further design tips. Bending radii, circle radii, and chain widths are variable in this product range.
