At $7,455 and only around 8 kilograms, […]
i.Sense CF.D sensors use high-frequency technology to detect defects in bus and data cables, preventing expensive system downtimes. December 9, 2021 – igus®, one of the worldwide leaders in predictive maintenance, has introduced the latest generation of monitoring sensors that check the electrical condition of chainflex® cables in e-chain systems without contact or intervention in […]
igus® develops P4HD rol e-chain with wear-resistant materials, quickly replaceable side parts and smart monitoring December 1, 2021 – A new e-chain from igus® meets the demand for more from energy supply systems in new generations of cranes. The heavy-duty P4HD rol e-chain offers longer travels, high accelerations and speed along with reliability. The rol […]
The vector award for the best e-chain® applications is entering its eighth round – and applications will be accepted until February 11, 2022 They rotate by 7,000 degrees, travel at speeds of up to 10 meters per second and move three-dimensionally like snakes: e-chain® cable carriers made of high-performance plastics. Every two years, a panel […]
i.Cee:local sensor predicts the service life of machinery and equipment, making maintenance efficient and predictable July 15, 2021 – igus has developed a sensor for its smart plastics software that calculates the remaining service life of energy chains, cables, linear guides and plain bearings during operation. The i.cee:local sensor from igus optimizes the life of […]
Igus has created a system of data collection to monitor machine equipment with the goal of reducing downtime with a communication module connected to the company’s IT.
High speeds on long travels are special challenges for energy chain systems on machines and plants. Therefore, igus has now developed a new glide bar made of high-performance plastics with a five times longer service life. To monitor the wear-resistant rail, users now have the smart plastics EC.T sensor. This provides regular information about the condition of the rail and sends important technical information to the maintenance engineer in good time.
