Energy chains for circular and spiral movements

Turning 7,000 degrees in a horizontal orientation while safely and reliably guiding energy, data, liquids, gases, oils and light is something not many energy supplies for circular movements are able to do. Here, once again, the energy chain underscores its versatility and modular design. It doesn't always have to be 7,000 degrees. twisterchain offers solutions from the standard modular system for circular movements of up to 400 degrees with large cable loads.


twisterchain, new

twisterchain – new generation

Current generation

Tough, quiet, for high loads, can turn up to 540°

  • Inner height: 28 to 56mm
  • Crossbars openable along inner radius
  • Stronger; higher fill weights possible
  • 25% less weight that the previous twisterchain
  • Highly dynamic and quieter running (with new trough)
  • Smooth cable-friendly interior
  • Successfully tested for over 1 million cycles in the igus® laboratory
  • Rotary speeds of up to 1m/s and more, rotary/spiral movements up to 540° (360° from stock)



Predecessor model of the twisterchain, new

Circular and spiral movements

  • Inner height: 28 to 56mm
  • Openable along inner and outer radius
  • Classic version


Up to 7,000° rotary movements in the most confined of spaces

  • Inner height: 9 to 22mm
  • Rotary speeds of up to 180°/s possible
  • Minimum installation space, fits very closely around the rotary axis
  • Cost-effective and easy to fill
  • Can be reliably used in various installation positions (horizontal, vertical upside down)
