A long journey: 80 low-cost robots from igus for research at Indian higher-education institutions11-04-2019

German-Indian knowledge transfer with easy-to-operate robot arms fur simple automation tasks Cologne, 17 January 2019 – Robotics and automation technology is an important subject within higher-education institutions in India and not only in Germany. The governments of the two countries are working together intensively in order to boost research in these areas. In response to the Indian government's search for simple robot systems for teaching purposes, robolink, the cost-effective modular system from igus, was so convincing that over 80 robolink arms for 40 Indian educational facilities were ordered. During a workshop in Aachen, professors from India gained direct, first-hand experience of how easy it is to use the low-cost robots from igus.

Hannover Messe 2019: igus presents the future of service robotics to German Chancellor Angela Merkel03-04-2019

Cost-effective robot arms could, for example, undertake simple household duties VIP visit at the igus stand: German Federal Chancellor Dr Angela Merkel and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven visited the stand of the motion plastics specialist igus at this year's Hannover Messe. The main focus of interest: cost-effective "robotics made in Germany".

Continued growth with motion plastics: igus increases sales by 8.5 per cent27-03-2019

At Hannover Messe, the motion plastics specialist will be presenting 120 new plastic products that improve technical performance and reduce overall costs Configurable online, on the go and on a tablet, as a durable special part, 3D printed or equipped with smart intelligence – motion plastics are increasingly becoming high-tech components. At this year's Hannover Messe, igus will be demonstrating this development with 120 new products – from the intelligent plain bearing to the world's first online platform that brings suppliers and users of cost-effective robotics together.

Quickly harnessed and safely protected with new pair shielding for igus servo cables20-03-2019

Save 30% installation time thanks to new igus pair shield design in chainflex servo cables The objective of the four-year development and testing conducted by the cable specialists at igus, was the easy processing of cables, simple installation of complex pair shield and, at the same time, increasing the service life of the energy chain. The result is a new pair shield for the chainflex servo cables of the CF 21, 27 and 29 series. This ensures maximum electromagnetic compatibility of the control pair and a faster shielding of the cable. This enables the user to save up to 30% of the processing time for the pair shield and thus also installation costs.

Highly flexible Ethernet cables with 600 Volt UL certificate for Industry 4.013-03-2019

New CAT5e and CAT6 cables for use in e-chain with increased service life and approval for the American market CAT5e or CAT6 cables are indispensable for the implementation of Industry 4.0 in automation. igus has now further developed two highly flexible Ethernet cables, CFBUS.045 and CFBUS.049, specifically for use in the energy chain. The new CAT5e and CAT6 cables have enhanced UL approval for the North American market with 600 volts. They have been successfully tested in the igus test laboratory with more than 76 million strokes and are available from stock from a length of 1 metre.

One hot topic: The company igus advances the development of high-temperature filaments with self-built HT printer06-03-2019

"A good example of our Low Cost Automation concept," says Tom Krause, igus GmbH, about his team's newly designed and constructed high-temperature 3D printer

Low Cost Automation in our own factory: Following this idea, igus has built an HT-3D printer for the development of new high-temperature filaments using in-house mechanical engineering components. Thus, complete linear systems, consisting of drylin W linear guides, dryspin lead screws made of stainless steel and the igus standard stepper motors were used. Thanks to the new 3D printer, users can now use a lubrication-free and maintenance-free filament for the production of heat-resistant special parts with the iglidur J350 high-performance plastic.

Drive cable delivered fast after easy online search and order20-02-2019

The readycable product finder from igus with its newly integrated service life calculator ensures fast delivery starting from 24 hours

Using the igus "readycable product finder" online tool, harnessed drive cables for use in the energy chain can be easily selected and ordered from igus. The newly integrated service life calculator now expands the service and predicts the lifetime of the cable. In this way, the user can choose their special design for energy chains, to the required length, from over 4,200 ready-to-connect drive cables.

Quieter, stronger and faster to fill: New igus e-chain standard for small and medium sizes13-02-2019

E2.1 series reduces noise by 10 dB and assembly time by 50% The new E2.1 range which was previously only available for expensive speciality chains has now become the standard at igus. The new range is characterised by a long service life, very quiet operation and easy filling in seconds. This saves the user 50% installation time. At the same time the new e-chain series for medium loads meets the needs of the machine, not the other way round. In the future, users will be able to choose the ideal energy chain or energy tube for reliable cable guidance from over 850 alternatives.
