Dirt, saltwater, vibrations, extreme temperatures, high levels of mechanical stress and the risk of explosion are the most frequently occurring problems that impair the performance of drilling equipment and other devices used for oil and gas extraction. In such surroundings, where downtime is costly, the energy chains from igus® offer the performance characteristics needed to ensure smooth and continuous operation.
This year, we are launching 168 innovations. Industry Manager Tim Schneebeck will present the top news for the oil and gas industry in just two minutes. This includes the new cable package for top drive systems in the e-loop:
The alternative to the service loop to guide cables safely in hanging applications. Ideal for three-dimensional applications.
Trying things out made easy: with the igus corner, you always have the most recent motion plastics that are suited for your individual industry sector at hand.
We will bring the display to you, assemble it upon request and fill the compartments with the products of your choice. Or you can set it up yourself. As a permanent exhibition or for a limited period of time.
Smart plastics, intelligent e-chains, or plain and linear bearings report the maintenance date during operation and integrate seamlessly into your processes.
The flexibility of polymers has made energy chains and energy supply systems a valued asset in the oil and gas industry. What are the advantages of igus energy supply systems in top drive systems? What differentiates them from other solutions, such as festoons or service loops?
What is the fastest way to replace cables in e-loops? Heavy duty for e-chains - what does that actually mean? You can find interesting contributions about our products in the oil and gas industry in the igus blog.
