Low Maintenance e-chain® System

Cranes are prominent features on most container terminals, offloading modular containers from cargo ships and placing them onto trains or trucks. Very long travel distances can pose a challenge to cable management, especially as greater cable weights and higher travel speeds are now being demanded by the crane builders.


The igus P4 system e-chain allows implementation of a reliable, quiet, energy supply system capable of long lengths of up to 800m, while handling heavy fill weights of up to 30kg/m and at speeds of 10m/s.


This low maintenance e-chain system is ideal for crane or conveyor applications.  The tribo-optimised plastic rollers are mounted such that the upper run rollers travel past the lower run rollers, not over them as in previous designs, reducing vibration and noise. Comb-like auto glide crossbars securely guide the energy chain, even at high speed and high fill weights. An additional benefit of using the P4 e-chain is that energy consumption is considerably lower, as the required driving force is more than halved when compared to conventional alternatives.
