“Data is the new oil” – How the igus test laboratory generates raw data that drive all smart plastics products

Richard Habering | 28. July 2021

Anyone who can make reliable, useful maintenance predictions is one step ahead of the competition. In the age of digitalisation, more than Big Data is required for such predictions. To derive correct maintenance scheduling recommendations from the sensor data, we therefore compare them with long-term empirical values from the igus® test database.

ZERO DOWNTIME – How predictive maintenance is revolutionising automotive production

Richard Habering | 14. July 2021

In automotive production, the line never stops. On average, an engine comes off the assembly line every 14 seconds. To avoid unplanned downtime and system breakdowns, many German and international automotive factories are already using modern maintenance concepts with predictive maintenance.

Maximum service life from the roller: condition monitoring in container cranes with intelligent rol e-chains

Richard Habering | 16. June 2021

More than 25,000 igus energy chains travel long distances every year in STS cranes, storage and retrieval units and linear robots. To load and unload the cutting-edge Triple E-class container ships, larger STS cranes must be built or existing cranes retrofitted. For future operations, in addition to using rol e-chains, there is much to recommend self-monitoring systems fitted with sensors.

How gantry solutions for automation are becoming even more reliable with targeted deployment of Industry 4.0 technology

Richard Habering | 10. June 2021

Energy chains in gantry systems ensure that moving power and data cables and pneumatic lines are protected and reliably guided. To counteract problems on long travels, several technology companies are working with igus on the optimum integration of various sensor systems into modular gantry solutions for automation.

Condition monitoring of linear robots

Richard Habering | 26. March 2021

This or something similar must have happened between Güdel and igus at one of the earlier Hannover Messe events. It was decided, probably along with a handshake, to feed the condition monitoring system from Güdel with the data from the condition monitoring system from igus (i.Sense).
