Energy chain project in a concrete spreader system

igu-blog-adm | 27. July 2021

Two combined e-chain systems with individual trough systems for concrete spreaders Concrete is one of the most popular building materials of our time. It is used not only in private housebuilding, but also in industrial manufacture. Ebawe Anlagentechnik, a company based in Eilenburg, Germany, is specialised in turnkey production systems for prefab concrete construction. It […]

De-icing vehicles protect the lives of airline passengers – and igus helps

Florian Schiller | 26. July 2021

Snow and ice collecting on aircraft can quickly compromise aircraft safety. They impair aerodynamics and can therefore, in the worst case, cause stalling resulting in a crash. That is why, wherever cold temperatures are the norm, special machines are used: de-icing vehicles. How does de-icing work, and what agents are used? De-icing is a two-step […]

Maximum service life from the roller: condition monitoring in container cranes with intelligent rol e-chains

Richard Habering | 16. June 2021

More than 25,000 igus energy chains travel long distances every year in STS cranes, storage and retrieval units and linear robots. To load and unload the cutting-edge Triple E-class container ships, larger STS cranes must be built or existing cranes retrofitted. For future operations, in addition to using rol e-chains, there is much to recommend self-monitoring systems fitted with sensors.
