The tool features cables with various approvals and compliances from 20 manufacturers’ standards. Once the appropriate cable has been selected, the user can place an order instantly and the product will be dispatched within 24 hours.

According to igus director Justin Leonard, the tool — which comes from the company’s readychain and readycable business unit — enables customers to select and order the specific cable they need with the knowledge that it will be delivered the next day. 

Finding the right drive cable for a particular application is straightforward; the user can either enter the manufacturer’s part number or select a manufacturer by name from the dropdown menu. Once the cable has been selected, a detailed overview of it is then provided that includes information such as the outer jacket material (PUR, PVC or TPE), bending radius, environmental conditions, travel distances and conformity with relevant standards such as UL and CSA.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
