Compact low-cost energy chain designed for drawers

2 days ago

igus has launched the draw-e-chain for cable routing in drawers and pull-out applications like server racks. Thanks to its minimal structural design, this compact energy chain costs 30% less than that of the most cost-effective standard e-chains. This prevents costly oversizing, especially if the application is only moved infrequently.
