For the production of machines and equipment, there are many good reasons to decide in favour of ready-to-install energy chains:
Tech up. cost down: We always offer you at least one of the two. That is our vocation and what we have been offering you for many years.
Experience all readychain® & readycable® innovations in 2022.
One connector instead of many: there are almost infinite combinations for our plug-in e-chain family, which can be customised up to 100% to the customer application. For this purpose, it offers plug-in safety and saves up to 80% assembly time. In case of servicing, this means: unplug, plug in, get started. There is no easier way.
For users who want to configure their individual interface themselves, there are now Module Connect sets with three or four cable inputs.They consist of carrier housings, connector housings, sealing inserts and strain relief. Accessories, such as single and double locking devices and fixing elements, can be ordered to match the application. Contact inserts for individual configuration are also available at igus!

A universal machine for the workshop has always been the goal towards which DVS Universal Grinding GmbH has striven. The UGrind allows workpieces to be turned and ground simply, quickly and cost-effectively. The company offers user-friendly machine tools for manufacturing everything from high-precision rotor shafts for electric drives to tools to hard-coated brake disks for sports cars.
The heart of the MULTISPRINT multi-spindle lathe is the spindle drum with six spindles for simultaneous machining of several workpieces. The drum moves the workpieces to the tools quickly and very precisely. For spindles to return to the starting position after machining has been completed in the six stations, the drum has to turn 300 degrees in reverse. The biggest challenge: a safe energy supply system for all six spindles.
In its robotic machining centres, Taiwanese tool manufacturer Hartford uses fully harnessed energy chain systems from igus.
This cuts out many process steps for the manufacturer, reducing assembly time from several weeks to just half a day. At the same time, customers can always depend on receiving a safe and reliable solution from a single source when they order readychains from igus.
Modular automatic medication picking systems are used for the fast storage and retrieval of medicines in chemists, hospitals or care homes and can be adapted to almost all spatial conditions on site. They have to be both compact and modular to allow for an extension and safe supply without problems.
readychain systems can be ideally adapted to circumstances and spatial conditions.
The Mongstad offshore base is one of the most frequently used bases in Norway. The ships change twice a day in order to be loaded with equipment for the offshore platforms in the North Sea. The base operates around the clock.
Therefore, a reliable, robust and flexible system for supplying shore power from igus is used. A harnessed e-spool is integrated in a three-metre long container that can be handled by forklifts to position the system along the various berths.
Where the automation of machines and industrial plant is concerned, there is a whole series of different reasons to decide in favour of pre-assembled energy supply systems. Manufacturing costs decrease, sources of errors are practically excluded. Less project planning work is needed whereas reliability increases. Possible areas of use are in assembly/installation engineering and handling technology, in conveyor technology or in mechanical engineering.
igus takes on responsibility for the entire procurement logistics - from procurement of the necessary special parts, metal sheets or machine parts to provision of the ready-to-install system on the scheduled date.
Energy chains from igus are already being reliably used in hundreds of thousands of applications all over the world. From beverage machines up to steelworks, from linear applications up to the most complicated task - igus offers thousands of installation options.
With more than 1,300 chainflex cables from stock, igus offers the largest range of cables specifically for the energy chain. Thanks to the industry's largest test laboratory, igus is the only supplier in the market able to offer a 36-month guarantee on all its chainflex cables.
All common plug-in connections and more than 4,600 drive cables matching 24 manufacturer standards are available.
No company has to deal with installing energy chains and cables for their machines any more. With our readychain system, we provide individual, harnessed energy supply systems, which can be easily installed on site.
From more than 15,000 tests performed per year, we have created what is probably the world's largest test database. This database gives us the ability to always select the right product for your specific application. Individual tests for your industry are also possible.
