igus® takes the next step towards industry 4.0 by developing the worlds first chainflex® cable that warns the user before it fails. If problems arise, such as the threat of a core breakage, the cable issues a warning while in operation. This enables the user to replace the cable before it has a chance to fail.
A big stride for preventive maintenance and therefore, increased plant availability. The cable will be presented at the 2016 Hannover Messe.
If you are already interested, you are welcome to gain initial experience as a beta tester.
