Heavy plastics - applications in building material manufacturing

40 years' experience

igus® is a specialist in the area of plastic research and can look back on 40 years of experience here. Specially developed high-performance plastics enable the use of igus® e-chain systems® in almost all application areas. Damp, dirt, chips, heat, cold, we have the solution for every requirement and do not use any steel or other metals in our e-chain® materials. In an increasing number of heavy duty areas, steel systems are being successfully replaced by igus® plastic e-chains® due to their exceptional suitability.

State your requirements and we fulfil them:

Corrosion-free

Cost-efficient, modular design

Long life at minimum maintenance costs

Resistance against dirt, chemicals and high temperatutres

Proven, tested material with igus® system garantee

Low weight with high stability

TÜV certified



That is only a few points that we consider when selecting and designing your "heavy-duty system". See all the things for yourself that are possible in the heavy-duty area with igus® - plastics for longer life®.

Application examples in building material manufacturing

Shelving system for concrete bricks

Data exchange is possible by exchanging the cable drum with an e-chain®.

Shelving system for concrete bricks    

Concrete production

No more short circuits for demanding logistics tasks.

Concrete production    

Porous concrete hardening

Reliable process control in adverse environmental conditions, such as dust, rust and moisture.

Porous concrete hardening    

Handling roof tiles

No more cork screws and cable failures when transporting roof shingles.

Handling roof tiles    

Cegielnie

Extreme stressing from tile dus in the building material industry.

Cegielnie    

Fabryka dachówek

Optimum cable guidance even under extreme conditions, like here in a roof tile factory.

Edge processing
machine

Due to the low friction in the use of roller bearings, a complex counter force or gripping mechanism is necessary.

Edge processing  machine    

Wood and sandwich processing

Here an energy supply system was developed from standard parts, whose piggyback system at last allocates a
defined place for the large volume suction hoses.

Wood and sandwich processing    

Wood-sawing machines

Unlike in former times, the Homag-Sawtech AG has virtually no more complaints.

Wood-sawing machines    

Reduced electrical installation time

Energy chains, fully assembled with cables and connectors, are delivered ready for mounting (readychain®) and can be installed immediately. In this way the electrical installation time has been halved.

Reduced electrical installation time    

Wood processing
machine

There is little space available and the cables are strongly stressed due to the complex movements.
