autoglide 5 update

Christian Strauch | 10. November 2021

autoglide 5, the energy chain for long distances that does not require a guide trough. I introduced this special energy chain about 18 months ago. Lots has happened since then. We have refined the chain: 1. New sizes have been added. In addition to the series 2400.07 with the relevant radius, this type was completed […]


Fast AND smart: the micro flizz safely guides energy, data and media … even in the Industrial Internet of Things.

Richard Habering | 5. November 2021

Guiding energy, data and media in the tightest of spaces at high speeds is a major challenge for many users, such as those working in intralogistics. The igus micro flizz offers a compact energy supply system for travels of up to 100 metres. If the user wants to monitor his bus cable's transmission characteristics, igus now offers the intelligent CF.D system. It monitors the cable's data transmission characteristics predictively and warns of failure in good time.


How electric sliding gates become more reliable

Energy chain or busbar system

Christian Strauch | 30. September 2021

There are 2 approaches to vertical energy supply systems on storage and retrieval units or lifters (shuttles): >Energy chain or the conductor cable. < Both systems are rated differently by leading manufacturers of these systems. Very often it is technical reasons that speak for the energy chain. Sometimes it is the price that decides one […]
