Increase plant safety and reduce maintenance costs with igus smart plastics
Intelligent products such as smart plastics enable you to increase the reliability of your systems, plan maintenance tasks accurately and therefore save costs.
Igus has been developing a family of products since 2016 under the heading 'isense', where various sensors and monitoring modules add intelligence to plastic solutions such as energy chains, cables, linear guides and slewing ring bearings. They measure among other things the wear during the operation and alert the user early enough to plan repair or replacement.
By networking using the igus communication module (icom), the online status and alert display, for example via a PC, tablet or smartphone, is just as possible as a direct integration into the customer's infrastructure. These smart plastics are already predicting the service life of numerous customer applications, and are continuously developed in close cooperation with customers.
The isense components provide you with additional safety through a permanent service life update, as they include the current ambient conditions of the actual application. Maintenance and replacement occurs only when it is really essential, saving time and maintenance costs.
