Tribo-optimized polymers for plastic machines

Installation-friendly igus® systems for movements in plastic machines

Save costs with the latest technology with maintenance-free energy supply systems and plain bearings


High additional loads, precision and high temperatures are catchwords in the energy supply systems of machines for the processing of plastics. Plastic energy chains guide and protect the cables and hoses in blown film lines, injection molding machines or extruders. Plastic e-chains® make use of their advantages even in difficult fillings:

High additional loads possible

Application in high temperatures

Circular movements

Pivoting motions

Space saving

Use in dust, powder deposits and moisture
