2 chainflex ® works ... chainflex ® is unique igus ® has been developing e-chain systems ® to house and protect moving cables and hoses for more than 30 years. As an expert in the cable carrier industry, igus ® understands why customers' flexible energy supply systems would fail. igus ® quickly realized that widespread growth of automated technology had resulted in increasing loads, which guided cables couldn't support. The cables would fail and cause costly system downtime, or halt production entirely. Most standard cables aren't designed with mechanical flex life in mind. igus ® embarked on the development of its own continuous-flexing line of cables, designed specifically for use in e-chain systems ® , introducing chainflex ® in 1989. chainflex ® cables withstand the stress of tight bending radii in moving applications, and deliver longer life at low cost. The chainflex ® line has expanded to include more than 1,000 cables sizes and types. Proven time and time again igus ® customers rely on their flexible energy supply systems to function properly. The company has dedicated significant resources into its own 29,600 square foot test laboratory. chainflex ® cables are tested in all types of conditions, including in extreme temperatures, different speed and length profiles, mechanical deformation and exposure to oil, chemicals, and debris. The data revealed by this testing not only provides detailed information on service life and durability, but also serves as a basis for new product development. To ensure the installation of energy supply systems that are guaranteed to perform as expected, igus ® also offers customers readychain ® pre-assembled e-chain systems ® , harnessed with chainflex ® cables, connectors, brackets, and other accessories. igus ® provides a complete system guarantee on all readychain ® solutions. The combination of comprehensive testing and application success stories gives igus ® the confidence to offer this guarantee. It is our mission to guarantee this worldwide.
