Increase service life with e-chain® cable carriers for port & terminal cranes

For over 30 years, high-strength plastic e-chain® cable carriers have been trusted and proven on thousands of port and terminal cranes worldwide. While unforgiving environmental factors such as high winds, UV rays, saltwater and extreme temperatures can cause traditional cable management systems such as festoons to fail, energy chain cable carriers are able to withstand the harshest conditions while operating reliably.

Trusted by major crane manufacturers, e-chain® systems are quickly becoming the “go-to” technology for even the most challenging applications. Learn more about how igus® cable carriers can benefit cranes of all types below.
