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.

Highly flexible Ethernet cables for e-chains with CC-Link IE Field certificate09-05-2019

New chainflex CAT5e and CAT6 cables with predictable and guaranteed service life and certification for CC-Link IE protocols CAT5e or CAT6 cables are indispensable for the implementation of Industry 4.0 in automation. igus has now developed two highly flexible Ethernet cables, CFBUS.045 and CFBUS.049, for use in energy chains. The new cables have now been tested by independent institutes and received the certificate for CC-Link IE protocols for the Asiatic region as well as UL certification, increased to 600 volts, for the American market.

Move high loads easily with lubrication-free igus ball transfer units02-05-2019

Advanced polymer ball transfer units for conveyor tables ensure five times more load bearing capacity Ball tables are used if delicate or heavy goods are to be transported in different directions. Equipped with the new polymer ball transfer units from igus, they ensure fast transport. The ball transfer units made of the high-performance plastic xirodur B180 absorb loads of up to 500 N, are lubrication-free and maintenance-free. Stainless steel balls inside the roller allows smooth running.

From the "rohbot" to the robot: Low Cost Automation with igus plastic arm and online marketplace model25-04-2019

robolink articulated arms and a digital platform concept facilitate initial steps in the world of cost-effective automation Low cost automation less than the price of the established automation suppliers for just a few thousand euro – this is exactly what many users want. But making wishes a reality is often a difficult task: What products go together? How good is the solution? Who can support me? At the Hannover Messe 2019, the motion plastics specialist igus presented two new approaches: A new 4 to 5-axis "rohbot" (h for half-finished) made of plastic and a model of the online marketplace for suppliers and users.

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.
