Advantages of polymer e-chains

When supplying energy to machines, high additional loads, accuracy and high temperatures are important. In injection moulding machines, extruders or blow moulding machines, polymer energy chains guide and protect the cables and hoses. Even with heavy fillings, polymer e-chains have their advantages:
 

  • High fill weights possible
  • Circular and pivoting movements possible
  • Use at high temperatures
  • Resistant to dust, powder deposits and moisture
  • Space-saving

With cost-effective automation solutions and smart plastics, igus also addresses the key topic Plastic Industry 4.0 and system integration.

Application examples of our customers

Injection-moulding machine

With pivot arm mounted in injection moulding machines with plastic plain bearings. With the simple plug-in structure and the adjustable collars, it was possible to dispense with highly complicated joining mechanics.


Go to application

Injection moulding tool

The e-chain® was placed on an injection moulding tool in such a way that additional space is not necessary for the rolling movement in the horizontal direction.


Go to application

Bag forming, filling and sealing machine

The crimpers in hose packaging machines often reach temperatures of 160 °C and above in continuous operation.


Go to application

Calibration basket in a blown film line

In conventional solutions, this procedure washes the lubricant out of the plain bearings or even flushes particles of dirt in.


Go to application

Measuring system for extruder

In this application, igus readychain energy chains are used for blown film extrusion.


Go to application

Pillar cleaning facility

Resistant to pressure, temperature and chemicals, iglidur plain bearings ensure trouble-free operation in this pillar cleaning system for plastic injection moulding machines.


Go to application

X-Y-Z adjustment

A drylin® SHT lead screw linear system ensures precise positioning of the tools in the X-Y-Z direction.


Go to application

Checked in the igus® test laboratory for use in the real world
