Plastic energy chains Reduce Downtime & Increase Service Life of Cables

e-chain systems® are referred to as the lifeline of modern machinery. These durable cable carriers ensure a safe supply of energy and data while under constant motion. They can be made with different materials, such as steel or plastic, but metal carriers may require regular maintenance, which, depending on the location and application, can be time consuming, costly and dangerous. Additionally, growing concern over the weight of machine components has sparked an increase in the use of lighter-weight plastic cable carriers.
