P4HD.56R rol e-chain

For maximum availability

The new heavy-duty rol e-chain meets all the relevant requirements for container cranes of the next and next-but-one generations.
Longer and longer travels, greater dynamics, short stress cycles, zero failures: in brief, this is what is demanded by the manufacturers of ship-to-shore container cranes for energy chains on the crane bridges. The new P4HD.56R fulfils these requirements - and offers maximum economic efficiency.

"Chains for cranes®" next level:
we want a service life of 15 years for e-chain systems - on every crane. This is our development goal and can also be found in the functional specifications for the new P4HD product range. New standards in container shipping are demanding more and more of energy chains used on STS cranes. igus, the energy supply specialist, presents a new generation of extremely long-lasting rol e-chains specially developed to meet these new challenges – the P4HD.56R.

Additional feature: predictive maintenance with smart plastics

In the latest development stage of the igus rol e-chains, the use of maintenance-free, tribo-polymer plain bearings in the connection of the e-chain links also considerably lengthens the service life.  As an option, the new P4.1 can be fitted with smart monitoring sensors. This means that, when a defined wear limit is exceeded, a signal is sent to the igus i.Cee:plus communication module, the signal is then used to plan maintenance of the rol e-chain in advance. The sensor is integrated into a standard side section of the chain but this does not restrict the usable inner width in any way.



The revolution of the rol e-chain

The roller energy chain has been the tried-and-tested energy supply for long travels for about 20 years. The successful design that characterises all our linear energy chain systems is supplemented by rollers made of stainless steel, which upgrade the energy chain to an energy supply for heavy-duty applications. As the energy chain rolls and does not glide, it runs silently and with low vibration. The wear is significantly lower than with a design without rollers, and the power needed for the movement is also about 57% lower.
