New EC.PR system protects energy chains

New EC.PR system protects energy chains
Energy chains for protecting moving cable assemblies in cranes can be damaged by foreign objects like loose tools, causing costly system failures. This prompted igus to develop a new push/pull force monitoring system. The EC.PR system records the precise force values of the moving end and adjusts the force limits, preventing potentially catastrophic damage to the crane and expensive repairs.

Easy interior separation for E4Q energy chain reduces assembly time

Easy interior separation for E4Q energy chain reduces assembly time
For safe cable guidance in unsupported and long travels, igus has developed the E4Q energy chain. The bionically inspired design saves weight, while crossbars with locking tabs reduces the assembly time of the e-chain by 40%. To facilitate assembly further, igus has launched a new interior separation system for the E4Q. Universal separators are placed on the chain crossbars, shelves can be inserted from the left or right, along either the inner or outer radius. A mechanism in the separators automatically locks the chain when closing.

Recycling refrigerants in the Netherlands

Recycling refrigerants in the Netherlands
By 2030, only 20% of the total number of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) that were sold in 2015 will be available on the market. The HFC phase-down is the most crucial aspect of the EU Fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gas) regulation and will have a major influence on use of refrigerants in all end use markets, including applications for food and drink manufacturing.
