Reasons for a ready-to-install energy chain

For the production of machines and equipment, there are many good reasons to decide in favour of ready-to-install energy chains:

  • Harnessing time is reduced by up to 95%
  • Reduction in manufacturing costs
  • Minimal amount of logistics work - no storage space necessary
  • Procurement optimisation - one system, one part number
  • Reduced assembly time - less machine downtime
  • On-site installation - international service with 31 subsidiaries
  • Special designs are possible - igus is developing further components
