In order to move doors, monitors or even panels, users rely on lateral installation of the linear systems. To enable the linear guides to absorb these lateral forces better, igus has now developed a new hybrid linear system. Two hybrid bearings provide low-friction adjustment with polymer rollers and tribo-polymer slide elements. Combined with an easily fit rail adapted to the new roller bearings, Treotham offers a cost-effective and visually appealing complete solution.
Treotham is pleased to announce that our igus 3D printing filaments are now available in Australia from Imaginables. Along with providing the materials, they also offer a custom printing profile developed by igus that has been tested on their printer.
Power supply in overhead cranes: energy chains vs. festoons
Hard on the outside, smart on the inside: igus develops world's first intelligent plain bearing
The number of passengers on public transport has been increasing steadily for 20 years. This is good news for the industry, but also an increasing load on the rail network, trains, trams and equipment. Durable components are required that can withstand such high requirements and yet meet stringent fire safety standards.
New universal clamp for energy chains and protective hoses ensures increased safety at work with all collaborative robots
Media resistance, lubrication-free and corrosion-free: these are the requirements machine components in the food industry have to meet today. In order to be able to quickly identify broken pieces in the event of damage to a system, igus has now developed two new optically and magnetically detectable materials for its plain and spherical bearings: the iglidur FC180 and igumid FC.
With the smart igus micro flizz energy supply system, cables and hoses move reliably at high speeds
Extended sizes of the new lubrication-free exchange bearings ensure longer service life of drylin W linear systems
New retraction system for energy chains ensures fail-safe operation of robots in modern factories
