company unveils the snapchain 2.0 for low-stress and flat cable packages.


Things don't have to be expensive. This is true not only of groceries, but also of energy chains. The simplest products often not only cost the least, but also represent the best technology.

igus has developed the snapchain 2.0 for low-stress and flat cable packages. The energy supply system consists of just one side link, to which cables can be fixed with cable tiewraps. It is made entirely of recyclate, so it is a sustainable solution.

Cash register and drawer systems, office furniture and gaming machines, leave little space for reliable energy supply to cables. To remedy this problem, igus developed the snapchain 20 years ago. It consists of just one side link, to which the cables are attached and guided in a defined bend radius. It can fit in the tightest of spaces and has proven itself in thousands of applications worldwide.

igus has now refined the snapchain, “We would like to give our customers even more flexibility in chain harnessing. This is why we changed the design so that the cables can now be easily fixed with standard cable ties,” explains Kira Weller, Product Manager, E-chains, igus. The cable tiewrap is simply inserted into the side link, routed around the cable package and closed.

Another special feature of the snapchain 2.0 is that its standard version is made of the igumid CG recycling material.
