Indoor and outdoor cranes
These indoor cranes work in very high temperatures, while the outdoor cranes withstand severe coastal weather.
igus® developed chainflex® continuous flex cables in the 1980s after an increase in the demands of automation technology meant guided cables often failed, despite the cable carrier continuing to function perfectly.
In some cases, failures caused by "corkscrews" and core ruptures brought entire production lines to a halt and resulted in high costs.
In order to find a solution to this unsatisfactory situation for its customers, igus® decided to take the initiative and create unique cable-design principles to help prevent machine downtimes in factories throughout the world.
