The P4.1 e-chain: Merging bearing technology & smart sensors for longer service life

P4.1 smart plastics New maintenance-free bearings and an intelligent wear sensor ensure a longer service
life in the P4.1 roller chain for cranes and gantries.

The line of P4 energy chains has been optimized for greater reliability. With the new P4.1 roller chain, there is a bearing point for pivoting in every chain link connection. These points are integrated with maintenance-free plain bearings, which minimize friction and more than double the expected service life. Container cranes in ports, for example, can achieve a service life of more than 15 years or 20,000+ operating hours.

In addition to the plain bearings, the P4.1 roller chain can be equipped with isense smart sensors. isense smart sensors monitor wear and abnormal operation in energy chains, finding small problems before they become critical failures. Engineers can access the service life data through any software system with the igus® Communication Module (iCOM), so maintenance is reduced to a minimum.

Service life comparison* igus® rol e-chains® generations

igus® roller chain Comparison based on indoor crane fitted with igus® products, the crane having an operating time of 9 years and more than 40,000
operating hours. The previous roller chains were replaced according to a maintenance schedule.
