New from April 2020

 

Revolutionary: energy and data transmission installed in one hour with autoglide 5

The innovation for storage and retrieval units and cross-traversing trolleys: install data and energy supply systems with 88% less installation time compared to conventional standard solutions.
No more complex trough design - the e-chain travels exactly in line on just one tensioned steel cable. And it's super cost-effective too: from €49/m incl. e-chain, 5 single-core cables, 1 bus cable, steel cable and installation material.

guidelok slimline P in storage systems from SIVAplan GmbH & Co. KG  
After a test phase, SIVAplan has started using the new guidelok system from igus in series production

The specialist for warehousing systems and material handling, SIVAplan GmbH & Co. KG, relies on energy supplies from igus, as these are not only lightweight but also save on installation time. SIVAplan purchases the guidelok slimline P energy supplies as readychain. This means that the e-chains are delivered ready to install with long-life chainflex cables. As a result, the great deal of work involved in pulling the cables into the e-chain and testing the finished component is no longer necessary.

DEMATIC storage retrieval system with igus® guidelok guide trough  
Vertical cable guidance at high speeds in DEMATIC storage and retrieval systems

DEMATIC is a global leader for automated logistics and uses guidelok guide troughs for the small part storage and retrieval unit (SRU), RapidStore ML20, for uninterrupted transfer of energy and data. For the deployment of the igus guide trough in this SRU, the main consideration is to provide secure, vertical cable guides operating at high speeds and great stroke heights: the system moves at speeds of up to 5 m/s reaching an installation height of up to 20 metres.
