Reducing costs while guaranteeing the highest possible process reliability: only those who invest considerable resources in testing and research, such as igus®, can successfully address these competing requirements. In the industry's largest test laboratory, more than 10 million test cycles are carried out every year at 180 testing stations with e-chains® and chainflex® cables.
Our mechanical engineering components pass the "litmus test" presented by production reality, because they have already passed this test before they ever leave the igus® warehouse.
4,100 energy chain system tests annually at 180 test stations: climate chamber, outdoor tests, noise chamber, travel lengths up to 130m, robot systems etc.
Interior separation in e-chains®: Cable wear virtually halved under the toughest conditions.
Pre-tests regarding cleanroom suitability in our own test laboratory.
How does the unsupported length of the igus® e-chains® Series E2.15 and 08 differ under load?
e-chain comparison test: E.4.42, E4.48L and 3500
e-chain® series E6.1 is extremely quiet
igus® plastic e-tube R4.38L vs. competitor's closed energy chain made of metal
Lighter energy chain with less sag
Ranging from metal chips to wood dust and fluids: we have the right solution for your energy supply system.
Absorption of maximum bending torque on rigid mounting brackets, so that these function reliably even when exposed to lateral acceleration.
The standard test machines are not strong enough to break the E4.350.
Tensile testing with energy chains in oil
CF5.10.25 control cable withstands 42 million strokes with a bend radius of 100 mm.
igus® E4.48L and a competitor's product are tested with regard to unsupported length as well as tensile strength and resistance to breakage.
The requirements regarding the permissible volume of noise produced by moving products in the stage area are very high.
In the igus® test lab, thorough examination is performed not only for the e-chain® components. iglidur® plain bearings, chainflex® cables, drylin® linear plain bearings and axes, lead screw systems and robolink® components are tested thoroughly as well.
