igus is the world's first manufacturer to receive UL AWM certification from the well-known US organisation, Underwriters Laboratories (UL), for its high-end TPE cables that do not use fire-retardant halogens as additives. This is the first time that the testing organisation has recognised that halogen-free TPE cables can also...
drylin ZLW toothed belt axis with FDA-compliant materials can be cleaned quickly and is maintenance-free thanks to tribopolymer technology The time-consuming cleaning of machines leads to longer and expensive downtimes in many companies in the food industry. To reduce this effort, igus has launched a ready-to-connect toothed belt axis constructed...
New ReBeL with fully integrated polymer strain wave gear lowers entry barriers in service robotics. Automation made very easy: with the new ReBeL, igus has presented a plastic cobot that weighs only 10kg. Together with low costs, low maintenance and simple operation, the ReBeL makes new innovative ideas in service...
Through the “UL verified” marketing claim, brands strike a stronger promise to prospective customers, delivering quality and authenticity. For igus, that also means greater trust, safety and reliability. How do you define brand commitment? The brand lexicon describes it as a “combination of performance-related expectations that are awakened in the...
Bevel gears made of high-performance plastics as a cost-effective and maintenance-free alternative to metallic solutions Bevel gears are suitable as drive elements in order to be able to transmit forces at a 90-degree angle. Especially for simple tasks, igus has developed bevel gears made of two abrasion-resistant, durable high-performance plastics....
Two new lubrication-free tribo-polymers extend bearing service life in single-axis solar trackers. Solarmid and iglidur P UV are the names of the two new materials that igus has now developed specifically for pillow blocks in single-axis solar trackers. The new polymer's durability is showcased particularly well in 2P (two-in-portrait) tracker...
Electrostatically dissipative iglidur AX500 tribo-polymer ensures maintenance-free applications with food contact. In bearing points for the food and packaging industries, temperatures and speeds are frequently high. Ensuring that mechanisms function reliably requires durable plain bearing solutions that can continuously handle friction and heat. Another challenge is electrostatic charges. iglidur AX500...
The modular alternative to ribbon cable proves its freedom from particles in the Fraunhofer test. Particle-free energy chains are required to guide cables and hoses safely in cleanrooms. igus developed the e-skin flat, a modular design, a cost-effective alternative to ribbon cables. In the Fraunhofer cleanroom test, the energy supply...
New rollers and glide pads with upgradable chains reduce costs and increase the service life of E4.1 e-chains. Energy supply systems from igus are favourites for safely guiding cables and hoses on long travels. In most applications, customers rely on the strong E4.1 universal energy chain modular system. igus has...
i.Cee:local module predicts the service life of machinery and equipment, making maintenance efficient and predictable. With the i.Cee:local module, igus has developed a new home for its smart plastics software. The module calculates the remaining service life of the energy chain, cable, linear guide and plain bearing during operation. This...
