Video of the Week – How ‘lean’ can igus® energy chains be?17/05/2017

This week we take a close look at the E4.1L series, which igus developed specifically to save on assembly time. In comparison with standard interior separation, using the E4.1L ‘lean’ interior separation system provides up to an 80 percent time saving.

Video of the Week – Highlights of Hannover Messe 201710/05/2017

In this week’s video, Dr Stefan Kombüchen runs through key highlights from igus at the recent Hannover Messe. Around 166 new products and accessories were on display, from 3D printed plastic gears with an outstanding service life, to bionically-inspired strain relief cables.

Find the right bearing fit with new igus® Fit Calculator app09/05/2017

igus Fit Calculator is a new app for iOS and Android that enables engineers to calculate dimensions and tolerances for bearings according to ISO 286. The app, which can be easily found and downloaded from the smartphone’s or tablet’s app store, is very simple to use and requires no registration.

Video of the Week – How robotics can make a book into a real page turner03/05/2017

If you have a suction pad, digital scanner and a robolink arm, you too can put the printed word on to the silver screen. This week’s video is an elaborate demonstration of a book scanner using a robolink articulated arm to turn the pages automatically between each page scan

igus® medium voltage cable for long-travel crane installations02/05/2017

igus has developed the new chainflex medium voltage cable, called CFCRANE.PUR, suitable for very long travels of up to 1,000 metres, such as those found in crane installations. Motor cables of this series are highly flexible, flame retardant, and oil and UV resistant. As a retrofit solution or for special projects, they are now available to order from stock.

Video of the Week: how to improve vertical cable management using energy chain guide troughs26/04/2017

In this week’s video, find out about the new guidelok slimline P.S energy chain guide trough for vertical applications, ideal for narrow applications, where space is limited. Vertical applications, including materials handling and access, storage and retrieval systems, as well as elevators, cranes and hoists, often require such a cable management solution.

UBRacing prepares for its 20th year of Formula Student25/04/2017

Celebrating 20 years of competing in the Formula Student competition, the University of Birmingham’s official team, UBRacing is preparing for this year’s race season. The competition, which is organised in the UK by IMechE, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, is all about building future engineering talent by designing and producing a single-seater racing car. As part of its YES (Young Engineers Support) programme, igus has backed the UBRacing team for several years with free engineering advice and products.

Video of the Week: how to improve productivity using readychain® pre-harnessed energy chains®12/04/2017

In this week’s video, igus managing director, Matthew Aldridge outlines how readychain pre-harnessed cable and energy chain assemblies can help reduce labour costs using a lean production approach and improve productivity by saving time.

Video of the Week: how to build low-cost robotic systems using igus® robolink® – part 4: cabling05/04/2017

This week’s video is the fourth and final part in a four-part series demonstrating how quick and easy it is to build your own versatile robotic systems using modular, low-cost and easy-to-assemble robolink kits from motion plastics specialist, igus.

Iglidur® L350 bearing rotates quickly, wears slowly04/04/2017

As a result of continuous research and development, igus has a new material for very high speeds in continuous operation. The iglidur L350 is ideally suitable for use in fans, blowers or electric motors. In rotational tests in the igus test laboratory in Cologne, the material proved its full potential against its metallic counterparts.

How to improve cable management for industrial cranes and gantries04/04/2017

When igus approached Kasen Cranes with an alternative solution for cable management, the industrial cranes and gantries specialist was quick to spot an opportunity. Traditional cable management systems have many shortcomings and require regular maintenance, but users are often reluctant to consider alternatives. Kasen Cranes worked closely with igus engineers to implement a new system for its on-site demonstration gantry and then used this to showcase the benefits to customers.

This week’s video is the third in a four-part series demonstrating how quick and easy it is to build your own versatile robotic systems using modular, low-cost and easy-to-assemble robolink kits from motion plastics specialist, igus.

Video of the Week: how to build low-cost robotic systems using igus® robolink® – part 2: gears22/03/2017

This week’s video is the second in a four-part series demonstrating how quick and easy it is to build your own versatile robotic systems using modular, low-cost and easy-to-assemble robolink kits from motion plastics specialist, igus.

Small linear axis for large tasks21/03/2017

Small, light and flat – these are the properties of the low-profile, linear axis drylin SLN-27. When used in combination with the dryspin high-helix threads, the linear axis not only carries out simple handling tasks; by implementing a stepper or DC motor, it can also handle high-speed sensor adjustments.
