Many manufacturers design their products in such a way that they give up the ghost early. Planned obsolescence is the name of this trickery. Why igus is pursuing a different strategy. Quickly print out the spaghetti recipe for the culinary evening with friends. But then the cry to the heavens: the printer no longer […]
The harsh environment of electroplating plants makes cables and energy supply systems a challenge. The answer from igus: energy chains and guide troughs made of the chemical-resistant, high-performance polymer igumid EG+ and tough chainflex cables. The rim of a sports car flashes in the sun. No wonder, it is covered with chrome plating. The door […]
Energy chains in the work area What used to be normal (energy chains in the working area) is now largely avoided. However, some applications cannot be implemented otherwise. Hot or sharp-edged swarf can quickly impair the function of an energy supply system. Regardless of whether the swarf damages the cables or swarf clusters minimise the […]
The installation space for energy chains is often limited in height. One solution, although not always practical, is then to reduce the bend radius of the energy chain. But this is not always possible. Either the reduction of the bend radius is not sufficient for the chain to fit into the installation space, or it […]
Extrusion is one of the primary plastic technology processing methods. This blog focuses on energy supply applications on extrusion lines – the combination of extruders and downstream machines.
