The IO-Link technology enables users to communicate quickly and easily with their sensors and actuators. The cables for IO-Link must withstand the highest stresses in the energy chain and torsion on the robot. igus has now developed two new cables for this purpose. They convince with a tested service life of 22 million strokes in test 4869. At the same time, they are 32 per cent more cost-effective than currently available alternatives.
For users who want to order their energy chain quickly and easily and assemble it themselves, igus now has the solution: complete kits. The kits consist of an E4.1 series energy chain, an aluminium trough, matching separators, strain relief elements and a screwdriver. This means that the customer does not need to worry about a time-consuming configuration of the energy supply system. All adjustments to the chain are made directly on the equipment or machine. The complete kits are available in three inner heights for travels from 8 to 24 metres in the igus online shop and are available from stock.
Progressive digitalisation, a high degree of product innovation, fast delivery times worldwide and a sustainable recycling economy – just a few of the future projects that igus is driving forward this year. The company is now expanding its management board to handle this wide range of tasks. Customers and employees should know that igus can follow its own independent path in every phase and far into the future.
