Igus has introduced the SLW Stop-and-Go, which, comprising a standard Drylin W slide with an adjustable leadscrew, allows multiple carriages to be on the same leadscrew but controlled separately.

To lock a carriage into position, the Stop-and-Go’s knob is lifted up.

This disengages the nut from the leadscrew, allowing the other carriages to move freely.

When the knob is released and pushed back into the carriage, the leadscrew nut re-engages.

The SLW range is available in anodised aluminium or stainless steel.

It has high torsional stability and is flat, compact and completely supported.

SLW systems can be mounted for movement in both the X and Y axis – this is known as the SLW cross slide.

These systems are adjusted using a trapezoidal thread and, as with all Igus Drylin systems, are 100 per cent lubricant free and corrosion resistant.

The Drylin SLW can be used in a number of industries, including machine building and automation.

The stainless steel system – which comes with three options of liner (Iglidur J for wet environments, Iglidur X for high temperatures or Iglidur A180 for applications that require FDA approval) – is suitable for applications in the food and packaging industries.

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.
