Today I would like to introduce a topic that is often overlooked or not taken seriously, but can have a significant impact on the success of your business: professional energy chain installation. Whether you run a small manufacturing operation or manage a medium-sized facility, investing in the right expertise for your energy chain systems can […]
Airports rely on gangways to allow passengers to board and disembark conveniently. If the gangways fail, getting into the aircraft is much more difficult. One way to prevent gangway disruptions is to use igus e-chains and i.Sense EC.P condition monitoring.
Defective conveyor belts in washing facilities repeatedly lead to expensive damage and breakdowns. So more and more companies are switching to sensor-supported, networked igus e-chains as part of a modernisation effort.
Can you 3D print components as large as one metre yourself? That is still a challenge today. Therefore, the igus® 3D printing team has designed and assembled a large-format 3D printer and offers the design data for download here. You can also read about the biggest challenges in this post.
Internet of Things, big data and autonomous robots: the transition to Industry 4.0 is in full swing. This also applies to components that work in machines and have long since become smart by providing data on their condition, for example. But integrating smart technologies is often complex for companies and involves external installation effort. This is exactly where we start with the SMS module for our i.Sense systems.
