How e-chain systems keep bucket-wheel reclaimers up and running

23 September 2019

Bucket-wheel reclaimers/excavators are the workhorse of open-cast mines and ports, and among the largest machines ever built. The equipment and associated electrical components are subjected to extreme levels of mechanical stress. These structures can rotate by up to 540 degrees and travel along for distances up to 1000m. The environment is challenging too with dust, which has an abrasive effect, accompanied by moisture, temperature fluctuations as well as the continuous movement.

For several years already, igus has been developing customised e-chain systems for these machines with more than 60 installations worldwide. They reliably supply power, data and fibre optic cables throughout the machine, alongside hydraulic hoses for lifting and water hoses to feed the sprayers for reducing dust emissions from the mine.
