Tech up, cost down: we always want to deliver at least one of the two. That is our profession and what we have offered for many years. The immense challenges in the current period are spurring us on even more.
Experience all our smart plastics innovations of 2022, such as the new i.Sense EC.W service life sensor and the first-ever predictive maintenance system for cleanrooms, right now, right here.
Robots have long been indispensable in many areas of industrial manufacturing – bb welding, painting, soldering, and palletising: industrial robots are becoming dynamic. A flexible 3D energy chain such as the triflex® R from igus® makes it possible to guide robot cables safely. To detect potential chain breaks due to extreme loads in good time and avoid unplanned machine breakdowns, igus has developed i.Sense TR.B, the world's first breakage monitoring system for 3D energy chains.
Our intelligent e-chain systems are already reliably in use in hundreds of thousands of applications worldwide - from beverage machines and CNC machines to steel mills. Unsupported lengths can be bridged without problems and long travels are conceivable for the most varied of industries.
All smart plastics test setups can be found here by rotating the mouse across the screen.
Condition monitoring (i.Sense) with chainflex® cables requires no additional module.
The system can be integrated and networked without additional software.
In these cases, cables have three options for condition monitoring.
