New plastic bevel gears from igus for the lubrication-free drive around the corner

Published on: 4th November 2021

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 now developed bevel gears made of two abrasion-resistant, durable high-performance plastics. They are not only lightweight and cost-effective, but also completely free of external lubrication. This reduces the time and cost of maintenance.

Compact rotation with plastic: igus develops a new cost-effective rotary energy chain

Published on: 4th November 2021

It is light, compact, and made entirely of plastic: the new PRM (Polymer Rotation Module) rotary energy supply system from igus. Specifically for tight rotational movements in cables and hoses, igus has now developed a system consisting of a polymer energy chain and a low-friction plastic guide trough. Users can increase the service life of their machines and systems with buying costs up to 73% less than those of a comparable steel guide trough. The new e-chain system expands the igus range of complete sets that can be ordered directly online.

Low-maintenance and durable: A flexible operating concept allows a clear view in construction machinery

Published on: 29th September 2021

Construction sites can be daunting, given all the machines, material and people. Keeping track of everything is difficult. A flexible new operating concept for driver’s cabs from Gessmann helps to ensure that operators always have the best possible overview of their surroundings. Because the tribo-plastics from igus used in the machinery require no lubricants or maintenance and therefore it remains relable over a long period of time.

Passed the IPA test! Three-layered e-skin flat energy chain gets Cleanroom Class 1

Published on: 28th September 2021

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 system has proved its freedom from particles in accordance with ISO Class 1 not only as a single-layer, but also as a three-layered ready-to-connect energy chain system.
