Production processes as for example in the automobile industry are using core machines. A
steel chain with a length of almost 6 metres has been used in this application until today. The
chain sagged after a maximum of 6 months and needed to be replaced latest after one year. The use of a heavy-duty energy chain from igus® lead to a clear optimization. The e-chain® will
be now replaced after two years – as a pure precautionary measure.
