Due to the characteristics of the laser cutting process, the requirements for the dynamics of an energy chain are extremely high - it must be robust and structurally stable but must not be too heavy. An energy chain experiences very high lateral acceleration, particularly on the Y axis. Moreover, components are acquired from different suppliers, causing wait times for the customer and installation/assembly work when they arrive.
readychain energy supply systems are already harnessed. The chains with all their components are harnessed in the igus readychain factory. Bystronics thus obtains everything from a single source.
For supply of the harnessed readychain systems, Bystronic uses the so-called Kanban procedure. igus reacts flexibly to the current needs and ensures that the energy supply systems arrive at the installation location just in time.
