igus was one of the founders of modern energy supply systems in the 70s. The smallest, millimeter wide energy chains from igus in medical equipment, in 3D printers or robots, large travel distances of up to 1,000 meters in steelworks, in port facilities, in sewage treatment plants or even energy supply systems in plants where it was unthinkable to use plastics just a few years ago - everything easy to calculate, order, assemble and install - either by yourself or by the igus consulting and installation service. Fast deliveries from 24 hours and with a unique guarantee of 36 months for the calculated service life by the online service life calculator for energy chains.
Our task is to constantly develop new innovations in e-chains and cables. In this way, we enable you to save costs and further increase the quality of machines and systems at the same time, in other words "Tech up. Cost down".
We at igus also accept the responsibility to contribute to the reduction of plastic waste and improvement of recycling: When energy chains reach their end of service life, we have them processed in our new recycling program.

Tech up: 36-month guarantee on all e-chains® components that have failed due to wear and tear. Determine the exact runtime of the energy chain according to your application parameters.
Cost down: Always choose the most cost-effective e-chain® that works with reliability and receive free spare parts for e-chains® that have failed due to wear.
Tech up: Save 40% installation time compared to the E4.1 series. 10% less weight: material recesses reduce weight in line with high stability
Cost down: Save installation time and costs through opening and closing without tools. Reduce process costs with further igus® online tools.
Tech up: 20 to 30% larger sliding surfaces than the previous series. The new standard for applications in the medium-load range.
Cost down: Improved weight and dimensional ratio than comparable previous series as well as significantly shorter installation times. Reduce process costs with the igus® online tools.
Tech up: Power and data transmission in tight, compact spaces and for fast lane movements. Guide energy, data, air and liquids in ONE system.
Cost down: 88% shorter assembly time compared to aluminium troughs From Euro 49/metre ready for installation incl. e-chain® of the 2400.07AG.075.0 series, steel cable guide, bus cable harnessed and 5 single cores of 6mm² each.
Tech up: Quick to install, vertical plastic trough. In combination with an energy chain as a replacement for busbar systems in order to be able to guide light signals, liquids and air safely in one system.
Cost down: Very easy and extremely quick installation. guidelite ECO is available ready-to-install from €38/m (*including trough, e-chain® E2.15.050.048.0, filling 5 x single cores 6mm² plus bus or FOC cable).
Tech up: A corrugated tube consisting of an upper and lower shell which, when plugged together, is completely closed, very easy to fill and openable using the zipper opening system.
Cost down: Simple maintenance and inspection of the cables inside. Extend cable service life through defined minimum bend radius.
Tech up: Combines the advantages of the proven series
e-skin SK for higher unsupported lengths and the e-skin SKS with elastic material for lower clearance height.
Cost down: Uncomplicated maintenance and inspection of the cables, and cable-friendly due to defined minimum bend radius.
Tech up: Freely fillable cable guidance system with particularly compact structure. Modular design with profiles that can be connected together and shortened as required.
Cost down: Individual cables can be replaced very quickly without changing the entire energy supply system. Flexible standard construction kit for many cleanroom applications.
Tech up: Implement unsupported travels with the particle-free cleanroom energy supply e-skin flat. Easily replaceable by connecting the individual e-skin flat single pods and any other e-skin flat.
Cost down: Individual cables can be replaced quickly without
changing the entire energy supply system. Flexible standard modular system for many cleanroom applications.
Tech up: Modular system that is easy to open. All components are individually replaceable and offer protection against impacts
Cost down: Turnkey solution possible. Including plug-in connectors, electrical testing and terminal box. Also optionally available with isense as integration for predictable maintenance.
Tech up: Slip-ring-free guide for power, data, liquids or air. Can be equipped with any type
Cost down: No slip ring and cost-effective in case of repair, as individual components can be replaced.
Tech up: The rotary module can be equipped with any cable type.
Cost down: Adaptable to technological developments, by simply replacing the cable used.
Tech up: No sliding contacts, all media in a single system. Weight saving -85% vs. Steel guide trough
Cost down: 70 % more cost-effective than a comparable steel guide trough. No minimum purchases – low system price, no minimum order quantity.
Tech up: 50 percent lighter than conventional steel chains and 50 percent more unsupported length than plastic energy chains.
Cost down: 50 percent lighter than conventional steel chains. Higher fill weights are possible due to the weight reduction.
Tech up: Durability for dynamic applications, reduced installation height compared to conventional clamps.
Cost down: Space and time-saving assembly.
Tech up: Easy handling due to short individual parts in 500mm pieces. Also 5 times higher abrasion resistance thanks to tribologically optimised material
Cost down: More durable glide bars at the same price as the previous model. Significantly lower maintenance.
Tech up: System weight of only 2.2kg with up to 290mm retraction distance. Prevents the formation of loops on the axes 4-6.
Cost down: High running performance. Reduction of downtime & maintenance-free.
Tech up: Up to 380mm retraction length. Easy to retrofit
Cost down: High running performance. Less downtime, maintenance-free.
Tech up: Elongated holes allow infinite adjustment of the fibre-rod module. Low wear by keeping the e-chain above the axis 4-6.
Cost down: Reduction of downtimes, maintenance-free. In only 8 clicks you get a complete solution with the online configurator.
