Six transport trolleys move material through the
individual stations in this galvanization plant. Until
today they were equipped with towing and ribbon
cables that are mounted to ball-beared transport
rolls and guided in a galvanized profil rail. Transport
rolls and the profil rail were susceptible to
faults and caused noise while the trolleys travel. Such expensive faults could be eliminated by
using the corrosion-resistant e-chain® from igus®.
The system operates very silent now.
