Ibow can be used to change a straight connector to an angled one

In just a few steps, the new Igus ibow can be used to change a straight connector to an angled one in seconds. To ensure operational reliability, the connector need not be removed from the cable – slide it on, bend the cable, fix and it’s ready to use.

With this simple injection moulded part, Igus allows flexible connection of cables to a machine, whereby the angle of connection is freely selectable. The angle adapter can be installed either during assembly or retrospectively on existing cables.

By using the ibow, the connector does not have to be removed from the cable, which saves time and is also safer. As soon as the cable, complete with connector, has been pushed through the adapter and angled, it is simply fixed with a cable tie. In this way, it can also be removed easily again later, if required.

Depending on the customer’s requirements, Igus supplies the ibow as an individual part in various installation sizes or already harnessed together with the appropriate cables. Users can also specify the desired colour or add additional individual labels.

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.
