igus® e-chains® have successfully replaced a cable drum in this application – a shelving system in concrete manufacturing. They connect the units for both directions of movement, so that cable-bound data exchange is possible for the first time. This has not been achieved satisfactorily up to now. The use of e-chains® is a low-cost solution which even exceeds many of the specifications required, such as possible travel speed.
