The Manufacturing Management Show, which will take place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 22nd-23rd November, will see igus demonstrate a range of automation solutions for a range of applications. Additionally, visitors to stand G14 will be able to observe a demonstration of the robolink D system.
The system is made up of self-lubricating joints and worm gears, run via a stepper motor and available in three sizes. Components for all types of applications, including self-lubricating bearings and linear gantries, will all be on display with samples and engineering information available.
Thanks to testing in its 2,750m² test lab in Cologne, igus’ engineers are able to predict the service life of products, offering reliability guarantees. Smart plastics represent the next step for the more connected ‘factories of the future’, where automated condition monitoring and predictive maintenance will help improve reliability and reduce maintenance costs.
At the event, igus will be demonstrating new improved smart plastics products, including the isense EC.RC, a system for monitoring e-chains, the optimised CF.Q module for the intelligent chainflex cables that customers are already using today and the intelligent iglidur PRT slewing ring bearings.
