... have been assigned the task of guiding energy and data to moving consumers both safely and reliably. They can be used in a wide variety of applications:
For diverse types of movement and travels
For supplying power as well as sensitive bus and data cables, FOCs, gases, air and liquids
For high dynamic loads and demanding service life requirements
In a wide range of environments and climate zones
Our calculations and analyses are based on the result of ongoing pratical tests in our Technical Center and our experience of more then three decades with gliding applications. The focal points of our tests are push-pull forces, friction values and abrasion under widely varying conditions and speeds, as well as factors such as dirt, weathering or impact and bumps. We test all system components such as cables, hoses, strain relief and other accessories, in addition to the e-chains® or E_Tubes and guide troughs.
