With the new ReBeL, igus now presents a plastic cobot that weighs only ten kilograms. Together with low costs, low maintenance and simple operation, the ReBeL makes new innovative ideas in service robotics feasible for smaller companies and start-ups.
Everyday life can present us with surprises and dangers. That's why people like to hedge their bets. They can do this with insurances, but guarantees can also help us feel safe. If an unexpected event occurs, someone will help me. That is certainly what many people think and hope for.
Isn't there a standard test that every cable manufacturer has to perform? What information can the standard give us? What advantage do you as a customer gain from igus’ decision to test cables under real conditions in the e-chain®? I will answer all these questions in today's blog post.
Many customers have been asking recently why igus are adding another certificate to thier product portfolio. Why do they need the UL Verified certificate? What does it say and how does it differ from the existing one?
The explanation for how a plastics company like igus came to develop durable cables for energy chains is actually quite simple. When igus launched the first plastic energy chain in 1971, many customers were enthusiastic about the new energy supply concept and wanted to convert their systems.
Lubrication-free igus tribopolymer plain bearings ensure maintenance-free operation even under the most difficult conditions.
New highly flexible chainflex cable saves 40% space in the e-chain and ensures reliable energy and data transmission.
Black rails expand the range of lightweight and dirt-resistant igus pull-outs. They ensure that the kitchen unit, provisions and bed are safely stowed away and easily accessible: compact pull-outs in camper vans.
igus develops P4HD rol e-chain with wear-resistant materials, quickly replaceable side parts and smart monitoring. Now an energy chain meets precisely these requirements for longer travels, higher accelerations and speeds as well as reliability.
In the area of machine tools, many users rely on Fanuc motors and control systems. In order to reliably supply the drives with energy while they are in motion, igus has now developed a highly flexible servo cable. It is designed specifically for use in dynamic applications.
