June 17, 2020 – igus has developed a new online shop for energy chains where people can filter products by category, application, and specifications.

The new shop also includes pricing, and allows designers, engineers, and materials specialists to have all of the parts listed in one user-friendly website. The site is  https://www.igus.com/e-chains/cable-carriers

igus, the Germany-based motion plastics specialist, runs its North American operations out of Providence R.I.

Easily filter products

The new shop allows users to enter the dimensions and filter e-chains by inner height, inner width and bend radius. Users can also filter searches by unsupported length, fill weight, speed, and acceleration. With a few simple strokes, product designers can choose and purchase the energy chain that best suits their application requirements.

Energy chains from igus can be used in small and large applications. The company’s E2, E-Z and triflex chains are frequently used in office management, automotive industry, and in low-cost automation tasks such as multi-axis robots, gantries, and delta robots.

Its larger energy chains, such as E4, E6, P4, twisterchains and guide troughs, are used in the oil and gas industry, bulk material handling and mining industries. They are also frequently found on port and terminal cranes as well as indoor and electric overhead traveling cranes.
