Why do we need energy chains in engineering applications?

Shery George | 29 September 2021

Energy chains are often called by other names, such as drag chains and cable carriers. Fundamentally this is what they are. These chain systems are designed to guide and protect cables and hoses carrying energy, data and liquid safely. The goal is to ensure an uninterrupted supply. Many moving parts within a machine need to have a power source supplied […]
