Components made with the multi-material printing process enable predictive maintenance for quickly manufactured special parts, so that machine downtime and maintenance work can be reduced sustainably. Due to the sensor layer, the intelligent 3D isense components issue a warning before the wear limit is reached or if overloading occurs.
The i. Cee. box manages to escape the machine's control cabinet and offers the possibility to transmit data via LoRa radio transmission standard, according to IP68. Therefore, the box is an alternative to the i. Cee. plus module, which is installed in the control cabinet.
This separator powered with solar electricity is always bursting with energy. Changing the battery of the installed module is no longer necessary.
Abrasion at the crossbar of the chain can be measured without problems and in a resource-friendly way.
iglidur® isense plain bearings indicate their wear status in good time. If a bearing needs to be changed, the system is informed about it.
System-dependent imprecision due to static force limits for travels > 150m are a thing of the past.
Now there is the new EC.PR module.
Small transmitters connected by cable are installed at 50cm intervals on the outer guide trough side links. The so-called beacons transmit their positions to a single antenna fixed to the floating moving end.
The LTE modem integrated into the separator allows direct communication with the igus® IoT cloud. Output of maintenance recommendations via web dashboard, e-mail, SMS.
Excess clearance between a chain link's bolt and hole is a clear indication of the decreasing service life of an e-chain system®. The EC.I.SU.02 sensor measures this clearance in clear percentage increments and sends it via LoRa to the icom.plus module.
No integration in IT environments, no interface issues. With the new drylin® isense linear carriage, the function and wear test is carried out simply at the push of a button.
