Container cranes in ports around the world will be even more powerful and fail-safe in the future. This is due to the fact that igus is launching P4HD.56.R – a new heavy-duty energy chain prepared for long travels, high speeds, heavy cable loads and Industry 4.0.
To make the digital creation of circuit diagrams even more effective, igus is publishing 2,046 new macros for the EPLAN planning software. The addition now also allows pre-assembled readycable cables to be visualised in the software within seconds. The cables are compatible not only with drive components from Siemens, SEW and Bosch Rexroth, but also with those from Allen Bradley, Beckhoff, B&R, Heidenhain and Fanuc.
Social transformation, responsibility for the environment and changes in the way we use plastics are receiving notice in industry. For customers interested in more sustainable designs for their moving applications, igus now offers an interesting alternative: four new materials made from recycled plastic are available in the new product range iglidur ECO.
