"System P4" - Applications

Over 1,000 systems worldwide are in permanent use with conventional roller e-chains®. Industry, in particular the crane building sector, places increasing demands on travel distances, fill weights, special and high travel speeds whilst operating quietly at the same time. igus® fulfills these requirements with the P4 system. Facilities of this type are designed by our project engineers.

Typical industrial sectors and applications

Crane systems (indoor/outdoor), shelf access equipment, plant, gantry robots, materials handling, mining, steel works

Overview of P4 applications:

P4 profile rollers in high-speed linear feeder

Dynamic feeding of plates by means of P4 profile rol e-chains from igus® for especially quiet, fast and vibration-free operation at high speeds and with large fill weights.

Gantry loader

Smooth-running e-chains® & pre-assembled cables from igus® are the perfect choice for the energy and signal supply system in this gantry loader by the Gehring Group.


A special challenge when designing this crane was noise reduction, because the harbour is in the direct vicinity of a residential area.


The replacement of the old roller e-chain system® by an igus® P4 e-chain® resulted in several advantages.

Linear gantry

Roller energy chains for a highly dynamic and quiet linear gantry in the automobile industry
