Our task is to constantly develop new innovations in e-chains and cables. This enables us to help you to save costs and further increase the quality of machines and systems at the same time, in other words "Tech up. Cost down".
We at igus are also committed to the reduction of plastic waste and the improvement of recycling: when energy chains reach the end of their service life, we have them processed in the igus recycling programme.

Tech up: slip ring-free guide for power, data, liquids or air. Can be equipped with any type
Cost down: no slip ring and cost-effective in the case of repair, as individual components can be replaced.
Tech up: power and data transmission in compact spaces and for fast lane movements. Guide energy, data, air and liquids in ONE system.
Cost down: 88% shorter assembly time compared to aluminium trough. From €49/metre ready for installation, incl. 2400.07AG.075.0 series e-chain, steel cable guide, harnessed bus cable and 5 single cores of 6mm² each.
Tech up: freely fillable cable guidance system
with particularly compact structure. Modular design with profiles that can be connected together and shortened as required.
Cost down: individual cables can be replaced very quickly without changing the entire energy supply system. Flexible standard modular system for many cleanroom applications.
Tech up: the rotary module can be equipped with any cable type.
Cost down: adaptable to technological developments, by simply replacing the cable used.
Tech up: easy to fill. Intuitive design. Flexible modular system
Cost down: 50% shorter assembly time than conventional chainfix clamps
Tech up: 36-month guarantee on all e-chain® components that have failed due to wear and tear. Determine the exact runtime of the energy chain according to your application parameters.
Cost down: always choose the most cost-effective e-chain® that works with reliability and receive free spare parts for e-chains® that have failed due to wear.
Tech up: reduce installation time by 40% compared to the E4.1 series. 10% less weight: material recesses reduce weight in line with high stability.
Cost down: save installation time and costs through opening and closing without tools. Reduce process costs with further igus® online tools.
Tech up: 20 to 30% larger sliding surfaces than the previous series. The new standard for applications in the medium-load range.
Cost down: improved weight and dimensional ratio than comparable previous series as well as significantly shorter installation times. Reduce process costs with igus online
Tech up: quick to install, vertical plastic trough. In combination with an energy chain as a replacement for busbar systems in order to be able to guide light signals, liquids and air, safely in one system.
Cost down: very easy and extremely quick installation. guidelite ECO is available ready-to-install from €38/m(*including trough, e-chain® E2.15.050.048.0, filling 5 x single cores 6mm² plus bus or FOC cable).
Tech up: a corrugated tube consisting of an upper and lower shell which, when plugged together, is completely closed, very easy to fill and openable using the zipper opening system.
Cost down: simple maintenance and inspection of the cables inside. Extend cable service life through defined minimum bend radius.
Tech up: implement unsupported travels with the particle-free cleanroom energy supply e-skin flat. Easily replaceable by connecting the individual e-skin flat single pods and any other e-skin flat.
Cost down: individual cables can be replaced quickly without the entire energy supply system having to be changed. Flexible standard modular system for many cleanroom applications.
Tech up: modular system, easy to retrofit and available as a harnessed version if required. Custom design for easy adjustment to different SCARA types. Safe guidance of cables and hoses.
Cost down: easy and quick maintenance. Shows a high running performance during test operation. 250,000 cycles in ten days. Components are individually replaceable. Less downtime due to fast assembly and disassembly.
Tech up: Modular system that is easy to open. All components are individually replaceable and offer protection against impacts.
Cost down: Turnkey solution possible. Including plug-in connectors, electrical testing and terminal box. Also optionally available with isense as integration for predictable maintenance.
Tech up: no sliding contacts, all media in a single system. Weight saving -85% vs. Steel guide trough
Cost down: 70% more cost-effective than a comparable steel guide trough. No minimum purchases – low system price, no minimum order quantity.
Tech up: 50 per cent lighter than conventional steel chains and 50 per cent more unsupported length than plastic energy chains.
Cost down: 50 per cent lighter than conventional steel chains. Higher fill weights are possible due to the weight reduction.
Tech up: easy to fill with laterally offset "easy principle", which ensures that the cables can be easily inserted but at the same time cannot fall out.
Cost down: filling without tools using the "easy principle" saves installation time and costs.
Tech up: Durability for dynamic applications, reduced installation height compared to conventional clamps
Cost down: Space and time-saving assembly
Tech up: easy handling due to short individual parts in 500mm pieces. Also 5 times higher abrasion resistance thanks to tribologically optimised material
Cost down: more durable glide bars at the same price as the previous model. Significantly lower maintenance
Tech up: system weight of only 2.2kg with up to 290mm retraction distance. Prevents the formation of loops on the axes 4-6
Cost down: high running performance. Reduction of downtime & maintenance-free
Tech up: Up to 380mm retraction length. Easy to retrofit
Cost down: high running performance. Less downtime, maintenance-free
Tech up: slotted holes allow infinite adjustment of the fibre-rod module. Low wear by keeping the e-chain above the axes 4-6
Cost down: reduction of downtime, maintenance-free. In only 8 clicks you get a complete solution with the online configurator
