Soft, but tough: New cables for fast movements in small spaces
The igus plane-chain ensures a compact energy and data supply in production.
Replace recirculating ball-bearing guides with lubrication-free and wear-resistant drylin T
New igus seals provide additional hygiene and protection against extreme dirt accumulation for maintenance-free plain bearings.
In its robotic machining centres, Taiwanese tool manufacturer Hartford uses fully harnessed energy chain systems from igus. This cuts out many process steps for the manufacturer, reducing assembly time from several weeks to just half a day.
Igus is now equipping its energy chains with a QR code. Integrated directly into the chain, it offers the machine builder online information about the chain, including assembly instructions, or how to identify and order spare parts, with a scan using a tablet or smartphone.
We offer a range of drylin linear guides that glide rather than roll and can be used for almost any application.
Cost-effective automation is the best possible solution for gripping, turning, pivoting and placing items and returning them to their initial position - especially in the case of simple pick-and-place tasks performed over a long period of time.
To save installation space in energy chains, some manufacturers combine the servo cable for power transmission with the measuring system cable for position data transmission to make a so-called hybrid cable.
Serving orange juice, loading the dishwasher or sorting purchases. The new low-cost igus robotics concept is intended to make these tasks possible.
