With the non-contact system monitoring for gliding e-chain systems® (with & without rollers), igus® has achieved a technological sensation. The new i.Cee wonderbox measures the dynamic parameters of the "passing" chain without contact, similar to a speed trap on the motorway. By comparing with standard values from years of experience in the igus test laboratory, changes in condition can be detected at an early stage and precise service life predictions can be made for each individual chain link.
The wonderbox can be easily installed on the trough in the area of the fixed end. No further additional elements are required within the chain, which also guarantees high process stability in retrofitting.
"Less maintenance effort, greater availability, the capability of guiding all different cables and hoses in a single system, intelligent i.Sense condition monitoring … I would definitely choose the intelligent igus energy chains again!"
Dipl.-Ing. Fabian Wilhelm, Project Manager for AOS Stade GmbH
In international automotive production, the global crane industry, or regional wastewater plants: i.Sense EC.P systems are successfully used wherever maintenance costs are saved and machine downtime prevented:
To the application overview
This case study illustrates how EMO B.V. is able to achieve over 375,000km on its STS cranes with igus chains for cranes®.
When regular maintenance work requires complete production shutdown ...
When motion anomalies cannot be detected by humans in time ...
If plants or machines need to be monitored frequently or continuously ...
If energy supply system travels are difficult to access or view ...
If maintenance work poses a health or safety risk ...
If maintenance costs are to be reduced and service life extended ...
Since the i.Sense Wonderbox is part of the smart plastics i.Sense condition monitoring system, all of its data can also be evaluated in the i.Cee control cabinet module. These data can then be used to digitally control the system's alarm and escalation management.
The i.Cee module can be integrated into predictive maintenance concepts in a number of ways, from preventive service management, which schedules regular maintenance depending on use, to location-independent fault management, which immediately reports any unforeseen change via various mobile channels. All information is collated in a modern dashboard, online or offline in the local network, depending on the customer's requirements.
This free white paper explains:
Our 200m test track for energy chains can be used to test travels of up to 400m. The e-chains can be moved automatically at a speed of up to 8m/s and an acceleration of 2m/s².
In this test we have the products P4, 4040RHD, autoglide 5 and i.Sense systems from smart plastics.
