igus Inc. Posted 06/24/2008
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – June 24, 2008 – igus® Inc., has published a new 2008 catalog for its Energy Chain® cable carriers—designed to guide and protect moving cables on automated machinery—and Chainflex® continuous-flex cables. The updated Energy Chain Systems® bible features a new introductory section, updated quick reference guides, and details on the latest products.
The new catalog’s introductory section makes it easier to select a cable carrier by highlighting key benefits, industries and applications, or offering assembly hints for the different designs available.
Updated products include new sizes in the “System E6” range—a low-vibration cable carrier designed to emit little noise and operate smoothly—and a new aluminum guide trough recommended for universal use: modular “SuperTrough” is designed for long travels and is available in a low cost, basic version, which can be upgraded for heavy duty applications.
The new catalog also boasts a completely revamped section on the company’s Energy Chains for robotic applications: “Triflex R” multi-axis cable carriers ensure optimal cable performance on a robot. igus’ “Less is More” approach to robot cable protection is also detailed.
Both the company’s Energy Chain cable carriers and Chainflex continuous-flex cables are specifically designed to increase cable service life and eliminate downtime due to cable failure.
