Energy chains

ekd gelenkrohr is manufacturer of energy chains since 1970. From the founding product energy pipe is formed today a wide range of energy chains and energy chain systems, which provides the standard of energy chains in steel and plastic up to plug in speciality products and tailormade solutions with cables, connectors and mounting kits for every application. The service spectrum ranges from the selection and design of appropriate energy chains, electrical and hose lining to final assembly and commissioning on site.

For most applications energy chains made of plastic is your first choice. Chemical resistance, light weight and low costs
are the major advantages. Steel chains are used under extreme payloads and high mechanical or other particular
requirements. For extreme cycles the hardened (carburized) steel is required to achieve long life.
