i.Cee Dashboard: preventive maintenance that you can touch … LIVE and in colour

Richard Habering | 21. May 2021

Very often, the utility of preventive measures such as forward-looking risk minimisation and preventive maintenance is not easy to see without a specific example case. Such cases are normally provided with theoretical insights or alternative use cases. To make it clear for smart plastics, we have spared no expense in preparing a real-life test case.

Maintenance requirements recognised in advance with intelligent linear guides

Richard Habering | 15. April 2021

drylin linear guide systems have to withstand extreme conditions in continuous operation or even in abrasive environments. So that the the linear guides can slide without lubricant, igus relies on linear bearings made of high-performance polymers. But when should I change the bearing? The smart linear carriage from igus helps here. Due to intelligent sensors, the maintenance technician receives information about the maintenance requirement at the push of a button.

Hard on the outside, smart on the inside: intelligent plain bearings enable continuous condition monitoring

Richard Habering | 7. April 2021

Plain bearings often have to withstand considerable adverse influences such as abrasive dust, high speeds or chemicals. To enable indication of the degree of wear of such plain bearings in good time, last year igus developed the world’s first intelligent bearing with iglidur high-performance polymers. This warns of imminent failure in good time. Machine and equipment operators can plan maintenance, repairs and part replacement in advance.
