Mobile car decks – the individual levels can be moved for transporting vehicles in the cargo
area of a roll-on/roll-off ship. This makes it possible to reduce the height between the decks
and utilise the space more efficiently. Electrical lifting equipment is used, which requires intelligent
cable management. The e-chain® from igus® is attached on the upper side of the deck on
the one hand and to its lower end on the other – fitting its design height perfectly. The newly
created technical term for this system is “punch chain solution”.
