Ready-to-install energy supply systems streamline your production

Increase your factory's productivity and improve product quality with readychain®

readychain® combines chainflex® cables and e-chain® cable carriers into a single, ready-to-install system. The entire procurement process is handled by igus®, and the complete system is delivered on a scheduled date. In addition, we provide on-site installation and inspection services as well as individual customer support.

readychain systems use a single PO and part number, making reordering a breeze and reducing processing time and costs. No need to keep track of part numbers for every single cable, connector, and chain being used.

e-chain cable carriers are already being used reliably in hundreds of thousands of applications all over the world. From small devices up to steelworks, or very simple linear applications up to the most complicated task — igus offers thousands of options for all types of applications.

There are over 1,300 chainflex cable types available from stock, each backed by an up-to 4 year, UL verified service life guarantee. Our cable assemblies can be designed to meet over 20 different manufacturer standards, such as Siemens, Allen Bradley, and Beckhoff.  Our cable assemblies can be custom assemblies built to your specifications and application requirements, or they may also include a combination of both our catalog assemblies and custom options.  If you need more information or would like to discuss options, please contact our readychain expert for assistance.
