chainflex® cables 2020 products and news

igus was one of the founders of modern energy supply systems in the 1970's.  From the smallest, millimeter-wide cables in medical equipment, to 3D printers and robotics, to  cable carriers in large travel distances of up to 1,000 meters in steelworks, port facilities and sewage treatment plants.  We've further innovated by creating online service life calcualtors and configurators for our customers to calculate, order, assemble and install - either on your own or using our engineering consulting and installation services. Furthermore, we can provide speedy deliveries after only 24 hours on all our cables' service life with a UL-verified 36 month guarantee.

Our task is to continually develop innovations in the area of e-chains and cables. We thus enable you to save costs and simultaneously improve the quality of your machines and systems, in a nutshell "Tech up, cost down".

We at igus also accept responsibility for making a contribution towards the reduction of plastic waste and improving recycling: when energy chains reach the end of their service life, we enter them into the igus recycling program for processing. Find out about our investment in the chemical recycling program of Mura Technology Limited.
