Rotating bearing support

Armin Gellweiler | 6. February 2013

 An important, easily underestimated detail in the design of the pikchain® is the interface between the c-chain® and the slewing ring, or the rotary union. The c-chain® must be secured in such a manner that it does not bend or collapse at the point of directional rotation. igus® has designed a special component to address […]

If you think now that our pikchain® is taking off with the Enterprise and James T. Kirk, I must disappoint you.I still have something that you might like: It is still in the study phase and the first models have already been implemented, but I’m pretty sure we will soon be able to offer pikchain® […]

Why triflex® R and no protective hoses …

Armin Gellweiler | 2. January 2012

The triflex® R energy supply system was developed for sophisticated robotic applications and compared to the protective hose, offers the following technical advantages.   1. Defined minimum bending radius Each triflex® R chain link has a stable circumferential bending radii stop. This ensures that the minimum bending radius of cables/hoses doesn’t fall short and the […]

Shall it be a little bit more?

hjansen | 30. November 2011

Can you imagine that! A pikchain®, mounted on side, axis distance 35 meters and a height of 400 mm for the c-chain? No? We do! But we have tested it before to be sure! See video. You see, that this project has nothing to do with our tiny show pikchain®, which we have presented this […]
