Vibrations, low temperature, heat, dirt: igus products offer excellent performance Construction machinery has to withstand very tough working conditions and needs to work reliably even in bad weather. igus makes this possible with its energy chains and polymer plain bearings that are characterised by their outstanding resilience and long service life. The product range includes energy chains for cable protection and guidance, e.g. when cables are used for work platforms, telescopic forklifts or drilling machines. chainflex cables that are resistant to UV radiation as well as low temperatures are designed for highly dynamic continuous motion. Maintenance-free and lubrication-free polymer plain bearings used wherever there are high loads, e.g. in excavators, wheeled loaders and telescopic forklifts. More than 20,000 customers worldwide place their trust in polymer solutions tested under realistic conditions, and in the many years of experience accumulated and built on by igus.

igus replacement parts designed for guidance, transfer and bearing support on telescopic elevated work platforms, such as energy chains and cables as well as plastic plain bearings, linear bearings or sliding plates meet the stringent requirements for components that are subjected to continuous stress in outdoor applications.
Configure complete energy supply systems for short or long travels as well as for hanging applications. Enter the application and environmental parameters of your application and the energy chain configurator "e-chain expert" will suggest suitable solutions for your energy supply.
Problem-free movement in spite of dirt and moisture. 16 robust and lubrication-free plastic bearings from igus® were used.
Used in a tunnel drilling machine, energy chains of the E4 family that are resistant to vibration and insensitive to dirt.
Cost-effective e-chain® of the 15050 series guarantees the machine's operational safety, while reducing shutdown times and maintenance times to a minimum.
