From linear technology and energy supply up to filaments – build with igus components 3D printer10-11-2014

From linear technology and energy supply up to filaments – build with igus components 3D printer Print your own components for moving applications with the new tribo-filaments from igus 3D printing offers users new ways to print objects with complex designs. This is a good alternative, especially for designers, to manufacture components quickly and inexpensively. igus, the tribo-expert, creates for 3D printers not only suitable components that are lubricant-free and low-priced, but also the right filament. With the iglidur I180-PF, igus now introduces an advanced filament that is even easier to process. With this filament, components for bearing points can also be easily manufactured and used immediately.

igus sets new standards in the catalogue09-11-2014

Over 100 further iglidur products increasing the standard catalogue range igus has once again and in time for the Motek, included a further 100 iglidur products in the catalogue of the standard range of plain bearings. Newly listed are; some new dimensions of the extremely temperature-resistant material iglidur X. The diverse catalogue range has become wider still to offer the right plain bearing for every application. And they are quickly available from stock.

A clean energy solution with igus on board22-10-2014

Automated docking of a floating power plant in the Hamburg harbour reduces emissions The “Hummel” LNG HYBRID barge was baptised in a ceremony in Hamburg’s Hafencity. Cruise ships can now be supplied with power whilst in port, thanks to the use of this floating LNG power plant. It uses environmentally-friendly liquefied natural gas – LNG. This saves fuel and reduces cruise ships’ emissions. The coupling process takes place at the dock using a complete solution from the switching cabinet to the connectors.

Reliable protection for connectors14-10-2014

The conprotect from igus – easily retrofitted protection igus developed the conprotect as protection for sensitive connectors in industrial applications. This protection against mechanical loads for standard USB connectors is assembled with ease in only a few steps and without tools. This prevents inadvertent unplugging.

magsnap – magnetic adapter keeps e-chains on track06-10-2014

Quick easy retroft for e-chain crossbars Many of the innovative products from igus are driven by collaborations with customers for specific projects. The new “magsnap” magnetic adapter for e-chains is an example of exactly that. The small magnetic adapters, can easily be clipped on the crossbars of energy chains allowing new possibilities for hanging or circular applications.

Travel light and safe with igus e-chains29-09-2014

Travel light and safe with igus e-chains igus energy chain systems are increasingly being used in cars With the increasing electrification of cars, so too is the demand for moving energy supply systems to reliably guide and protect. igus, the plastics expert, deals with all the challenges that energy supply systems bring with them in vehicles. In addition to its standard range of lightweight plastic chains, igus can also give customised solutions for every customer.

On Land and at sea with high-performance plastics gaining momentum09-09-2014

Motion plastics from igus reduce the costs and raise the life expectancy in shipbuilding At the 26th SMM in Hamburg, igus GmbH presented their comprehensive offerings for the shipbuilding industry: light and stable energy chains, Germanischer Lloyd-certified cables, and corrosion-resistant sliding, spherical, and slewing ring bearings on a multitude of moving applications – on ship, crane or shipyard, above and below the water surface.

e-cord micro protects the smallest hoses01-09-2014

Modular system from igus to guide and protect very small hoses and cables Moving small scale capillary tubes reliably and safely often poses major problems for design engineers, especially in the medical industry. igus has now developed the e-cord micro system to address this. The modular system of straight, curved and mounting parts, means that even the smallest tubes can be fitted into moving equipment with confidence.

Removable ball and socket joints with an always reliable grip22-08-2014

New igus component guarantees a constant holding force though with a simple manual assembly Due to a revised design the quick release igubal ball and socket joints made of plastic can now be closed manually by clicking in, and be easily opened again and disassembled with a screwdriver; thereby a constant holding force of the ball pins is guaranteed compared to the standard part.

Fully sealed and abrasion resistant – new ISO Class 1 cleanroom e-chain from igus13-08-2014

CRC e-chain for a clean, abrasion-resistant energy supply igus GmbH introduces an energy chain specially designed for the cleanroom, which offers a very high abrasion resistance whilst being a completely sealed system. It has been awarded the highest clean room certification - class ISO 1.

Clip-on guide rings from igus, instead of elaborately punched PTFE tapes07-08-2014

Lubrication-free piston rings available in new dimensions Where PTFE tapes have to be expensively customised and fitted, the iglidur piston rings from igus can be simply clipped on the piston or bolt. This affordable option from igus is now available in a variety of sizes and materials.

Fast, safe and quiet: igus expands the P4 roller energy chain system27-07-2014

Rollers ensure very low friction and energy efficiency for long travels The Cologne-based plastics specialist igus has expanded its comprehensive range of P4 roller energy chains system, now offering guide troughs for the P4.80. With it, a complete range of guide troughs are now available for all P4 roller energy chains from stock. Due to its special design, the P4 system can achieve travels of 800 metres or more in a very energy efficient way.

Equip for the future today with RoHS-compliant iglidur plain bearings14-07-2014

High performance plastics from igus meet EU directive and provide planning reliability The extended EU Directive 2011/65/EC (RoHS II) became valid at the beginning of the year, therefore tightened the permissible limits for hazardous substances in more and more areas. From the 22nd July, products with unacceptably high concentrations, such as lead-containing plain bearings face extinction in the Medical Technology industry. igus offers iglidur polymer bearings as a RoHs-compliant alternative that promises legal and functional reliability to the manufacturer, and safe use and disposal to the user.
