In order to safely and reliably guide cables in hanging applications, igus developed the e-loop as an alternative to the service loop - ideal for three-dimensional applications.
The e-loop combines the advantages of a plastic energy chain with those of a high-strength pull rope. Inside the chain, the pull rope transfers the pull forces to the mounting brackets and the structure. As a result, the cables are kept completely relieved of strain.
The modular e-chain made of high-performance plastic always enables a defined bend radius and can handle vibration and impacts
For a Canadian oil drilling company, an e-loop energy chain solution from igus guarantees that the top drive, which lowers the drill pipe into the earth and pulls it out again, is always safely and reliably supplied with energy and signals even after heavy storms.
The e-loop is used in a bucket wheel excavator made by Holcim (Germany) GmbH. The modular system made of high-performance plastic always enables a defined bend radius and can handle vibration and impacts. Instead of the planned eight hours of installation time, work with the e-loop was completed after just four hours.
