Igus will be showcasing its high-performance tribo-polymer bearings, stock plates, cable management system and more at the Advanced Engineering Show on stand G101.

Visitors to the stand will be able to see live demonstrations of its maintenance-free products, including new stock plates and an e-spool cable management system. There will also be the opportunity of meeting experts to learn how to optimise processes and reduce costs through the use of plastic components.

The E-spool is a next-generation compact cable-management system that has been designed in response to customer demand for a product that is more flexible than traditional cable drums. The stock plates have been developed to increase design flexibility for engineers when customising special parts.

Key features and benefits

E-spool

  • Enables users to guide many different cable and hose types, for example power, BUS, data and even fibre optics, in one single compact system
  • Robust, yet quick and easy to install
  • Provides cables reliably in any direction for travel up to 14m
  • Offers reliable operation for a wide range of lifting and moving applications

Stock plates

  • Designers can obtain machined parts such as wear plates and strips easily and cost-effectively with less waste
  • Comes in sheets rather than the standard round bars
  • Available in a variety of thicknesses from 2mm to 25mm
  • Made from Iglidur J material, which boasts low coefficients of friction in dry operation, low moisture absorption, wear and chemical resistance while requiring absolutely no maintenance
  • Stock plate material is also suitable for parts that need to withstand temperatures from -50 °C to 120 ºC
 

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.
