igus® to Showcase Robotics Solutions at FABTECH 2013
igus Inc. Posted 11/07/2013Energy Chain Systems® and Chainflex® continuous-flexing cables among others will be displayed at FABTECH, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event.
East Providence, RI – Plastics expert igus® will be exhibiting some of its solutions for a variety of applications at this year’s FABTECH expo in booth S552 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, November 18-21, 2013. Expected to cover more than 550,000 net square feet and anticipating over 35,000 attendees and 1,500 exhibiting companies, igus® plans to showcase some of its robotic solutions for the fabricating and metal forming industries.
Some featured products from igus will include:
Energy Chain Systems RX Energy Tubes -- nearly 100 percent chip-proof and its smooth, domed outer contour ensures all debris, such as metal chips, simply falls off. Perfect for rough environments where cables need heavy-duty protection.
Chainflex® CF270-UL-D -- A high quality, low priced single core solution. Designed like a spindle cable, the CF270-UL-D is much thinner than average servo cables, and ideal for supplying maximum power while staying within the confines of the machine tool.
Triflex TRLF-100 -- Inserting or removing cables and hoses is made even easier by individual links that open by hand or with a screwdriver. This allows thick or inflexible hoses with large filling diameters or a high number of single cables to be inserted in record time.
Chainflex hybrid servo cables -- Energy and data feedback coupled in one cable. As well as saving space by reducing the number of cables needed, costs are minimized by reducing the number of plugs needed, installation time, and a reduction in other materials needed, such as cable management.
