Slim, strong, and quickly filled: new igus energy chain generation openable without tools15-08-2019

At the Hannover Messe, igus presented the E4Q, a lightweight e-chain for unsupported lengths and long travels

Inspired by nature, designed for the industry: this is the new E4Q energy chain from igus. The chain links of the e-chain have a smooth, contoured design and a completely new crossbar concept with locking straps for weight reduction. These ensure that the new series can be opened and closed in seconds without tools. The energy chain has been specifically developed for the special requirements of unsupported lengths and long travels. The first prototype was presented by igus at the Hannover Messe 2019.

New online tool for maintenance-free guide rollers from igus01-08-2019

xiros expert helps in the easy selection of lightweight and lubrication-free rollers mounted on ball bearings

Maintenance-free, hygienic and clean: these are the requirements of the food and packaging industry for its components. For this reason, designers of film and labelling systems rely on smooth-running guide rollers with lubrication-free plastic components from igus. To assist the customer in the quick selection of the right roller for their application, igus has now developed a new online expert for guide rollers.

Energy supply in all directions with the new e-spool standard from igus26-07-2019

Roll up 21 metres of cables and hoses safely without a motor Whether at lofty heights, flat on the ground or in depth. With the e-spool - the slip-ring-free cable drum - igus offers an energy supply for different application scenarios. The compact, spring-driven system can safely guide energy, media or fibre optic data cables. To enable users to access the energy chain system even for longer lengths, igus has developed a new standard. Thanks to an optimised design, the e-spool can now extend cables and hoses up to 21 metres without the need of a motor.

Evaluate machine data with new igus communication module18-07-2019

icom.plus module enables predictive maintenance with flexible data integration for high IT security Being able to predict and plan maintenance is the goal pursued by igus with its smart plastics solutions. Intelligent sensors, for example, measure the wear of energy chains, slewing rings and linear guides. With the new communication module icom.plus, the customer can now decide in which form they would like to incorporate the acquired data from the sensors. From an offline version for restrictive environments up to the connection of the values to the igus server for automatic spare parts ordering, the user is free to integrate and read their data.

Cleaning agent safely locked, thanks to igus plain bearing in child safety device11-07-2019

Innovative student projects such as "EMKindersicherung" is supported by igus as part of the "young engineers support" Detergents in the home pose a real danger to many toddlers. Therefore, a team of seven students of TU Darmstadt, supported by igus, has now developed a child safety lock for cleaning agent bottles. The device is simply screwed onto the bottle. Access is ensured via an app. An iglidur plain bearing from igus ensures the lubrication-free and reliable locking mechanism in the child safety lock. The idea also convinced the jury at the Cosima competition, a student competition for microsystems, where the team took second place.

No chance for mould! igus polymer plain bearings pass the test04-07-2019

Lubrication-free iglidur plain bearings made of high-performance plastics ensure clean air in aircraft and buildings For the building and vehicle technology as well as for the aircraft industry, mould is not only a great annoyance, but also a serious health hazard. To prevent this, it is not only important to use the right ventilation technology, but also to use mould-resistant components. Therefore, igus had its materials tested for mould growth. The result: all plain bearings are resistant to fungi and bacteria.

3D Ethernet cable from igus enables fast robot communication27-06-2019

Tested chainflex cable for torsion angles up to 360 degrees safely transmits data to 6-axis robots In large-scale manufacturing industrial robots are everywhere. They provide a fast automation of processes and thereby ensure cost-efficiency in companies. igus has now developed a new long-lasting Ethernet cable, the CFROBOT8.PLUS, to ensure that robot communication between the axes, the control system and superordinate systems functions flawlessly, even under extreme stress. The new family of cables has been tested under torsion for several years in the in-house laboratory and is running absolutely fault-free for more than 15 million cycles.

Quickly harnessed and safely protected with new pair shielding for igus servo cables20-06-2019

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.

Fast like the emergency services: the igus 3D printing service for wear-resistant parts13-06-2019

igus additive manufacturing service produces spare part for Berlin-based company Blackcam's exhibit in just a few hours What do you do when an important part of an exhibit suddenly goes missing on the way to the trade fair? The response of the Berlin-based company Blackcam, a manufacturer of camera motion systems, is to turn to the igus 3D printing service. Using industrial 3D printers, the motion plastics specialist manufactures unique customer wear-resistant parts within a few hours. This is how the missing special plain bearing was made.

Order the right connector quickly in the new igus connector shop06-06-2019

igus is expanding its services with an online shop for connectors If cables are to be harnessed, then the matching connector can be found quickly, but often cannot be ordered in small quantities from the manufacturer. Here, igus now offers an additional service with its new online shop for plug-in connectors: the customer can order the right connector for his cable at a reasonable price from a wide selection of well-known suppliers such as Harting or Intercontec from stock and with no minimum order quantity.

Guide data, energy, fluids and air in a very tight space with igus30-05-2019

With the smart micro flizz energy supply system, cables and hoses move reliably at high speeds Guiding data and media in the tightest of spaces at high speeds is a major challenge for many users, for example in intralogistics. With the micro flizz, igus offers a compact energy supply system for travels up to 100 metres. It consists of an energy chain, flexible chainflex cables for tight bend radii and an aluminium guide channel. The micro flizz can now also be used with the new smart CF.D system. This monitors the data transmission characteristics of the cable in advance and promptly warns of a failure.

Safe protection for the next generation of motors with new igus material23-05-2019

Optimised insulation of chainflex VFD motor and servo cables for energy chain use, thanks to new high-performance polymer The trend for variable frequency drives (VFDs) is moving towards more compact drives with the same or higher power and extremely high switching accuracies of the frequency converters. As a result, when selecting the cable the user not only has to pay attention to the right combination of number of cores and cross-sections, but also to the electrical specifications of the cable. That is why igus has now developed a material that meets the new challenges for its latest generation of motor and servo cables. In the test, it was able to withstand a bend radius of 7.2 x d over 45 million strokes.

Safe cable guidance on the robot for a small price with igus retraction system16-05-2019

New retraction system for energy chains ensures fail-safe operation of robots in modern factories Welding, riveting, soldering: Industrial robots must work dynamically and quickly in production. Therefore, a safe and compact guidance of cables and hoses is required. This is where the three-dimensional triflex energy chains from igus are used. If the e-chains form loops in the work area of the robot, it can damage the cables and hoses as well as lead to machine failure. For this reason, igus has now developed the new low-cost TR.RSEL retraction system. The system guides the energy chain in a line on the robot, ensuring trouble-free and fail-safe operation.
