Energy chains for cranes

Reliable and cost-effective solutions for your crane systems

The right energy chain can provide a coordinated and reliable solution for any crane application scenario. Heavy loads, long travels, and extreme weather conditions are just a few of the challenges that crane systems face. In situations where deadlines are tight and safety must always be guaranteed, energy chains are a reliable alternative to busbar systems, festooning, and motor drums. They require less maintenance and noise, making them a more efficient and cost-effective option. Whether you need an energy chain for indoor or outdoor use, for bulk goods or container handling, we have a product that meets your needs. All of our products are designed with one goal in mind: to provide you with the best possible technology at the lowest possible cost.
