New products for a wider range of applications

 

For more xiros information visit the igus website on: http://bit.ly/1piTaVI

Bearings specialist igus expands its xiros range to meet the requirements of a wide range of industries. Also available are versions manufactured from hazardous-free materials for the food industry which ensures that no harmful substances come into contact with any of the product, whilst bearings made with detectable materials are created so that they can be quickly found in the event of a system failure.

Video of the Week – igus expands its xiros polymer ball bearing range

igus’ xirodur cages are cost effective, and ensure the balls within the bearing are optimally spaced to maximise quiet operation, in addition they can have FDA conformance where required to ensure further versatility.

The new axial polymer caster bearings, developed for use in conveyor systems, enables higher loads to be processed whilst reducing the risk of external damage to delicate products being transferred.

Video of the Week – Easy assembly with readychain speed from igus

Fast assembly and quick connection for fully harnessed e-chains

Take a look at the readychain for yourself: http://bit.ly/1kNC9us

The new readychain speed from e-chain specialist igus, makes it faster and easier than ever to connect harnessed e-chains with a combined connector and mounting bracket. A secure connection is guaranteed thanks to the robust connectors alongside the latches on the side preventing any disconnection.

The readychain speed reduces the need for excess cable lengths and removes the danger posed by any lose cables. Thanks to all cables being installed into one system, they can be plugged-in simultaneously, resulting in faster installation and low downtime.

Video of the Week – iglidur on tour – Our Journey So Far

 


A car with plastic bearings travels the world to celebrate 30 years of iglidur

To celebrate 30 years of iglidur materials, polymer specialist igus has retrofitted a car with iglidur bearings which is currently travelling around the world. The iglidur bearings have replaced bearings in applications such as the windscreen wipers, brake pedal pivot point and throttle valves, thus demonstrating the durable and robust nature of the iglidur materials. The self-lubricating iglidur bearings provide a more efficient solution for car designers looking for dirt and chemical resistant bearings that operate more quietly than their metallic counterparts. Whilst reducing weight and eliminating the need for maintenance.

The iglidur car has nearly completed the first leg of its tour, travelling through India, China, Taiwan and Japan visiting customers and spreading the ‘plastic for longer life’ ethos, and of course, doing a bit of sightseeing! Through its already vast journey, iglidur has proven its reliability by travelling in some harsh environments, from dirt tracks to wet and humid locations throughout.

Video of the Week – Second generation readycable finder

Faster searching, faster assembly and faster purchasing

Energy chain and cabling specialist igus, has launched its next generation online readycable finder  which allows users to find the right drive cable according to the manufacturer’s standard, as well as select the desired length and quantity even faster than before. Users are provided with a price comparison indicating savings and the most cost-efficient cable for the application purpose.

The readycable finder also provides technical information about cable properties such as oil-resistance, jacket material and bending radius.  The readycable interface allows users to change their product information whilst providing a running total price in the shopping cart.

Video of the Week – Press fitting iglidur plain bearings made easy

Expanding on the range to press smaller bearings into place

For more information on igus bearings: http://bit.ly/1nBjNSC

Polymer specialist igus has developed a simple to use press fitting tool for plain bearings. This updated and improved version of the original press fit tool PT-1350, which is designed to be used for bearings with an internal diameter of 13 to 50mm, is to now include the smaller PT-0620 which is suitable for fitting bearings with an internal diameter of 6 to 20 mm.

Both fitting tools ensure that bearings are pressed into the housing within the H7 tolerance. They are easily adjustable ensuring that the bearing is held in position during fitting.

The self-centring positioning fingers ensure that the bearings are accurately aligned before being pushed into place. Being made from high-impact strength polymer means the push-in aid will not break, even when fitting the bearing with an impact tool while reducing noise, thus meeting the needs of those customers who require quiet operation.

Video of the Week – igus e-chain for offshore applications

Corrosion resistant e-chains for the deep

Polymer expert igus has developed corrosion and sea-water resistant e-chains for the use in offshore applications. igus’ e-chains are comprised of a lightweight polymer structure that is used to replace existing heavy steel drag chains. Their low maintenance and long service life make the e-chain ideal for difficult environments or for those hard to access places.

Owing to its polymer structure, the e-chain is UV and sea water resistant, allowing it to provide a heavy duty energy supply to the ocean floor without the need for continued maintenance. The e-chains stability provides a high tensile strength with hanging applications of up to 200m in length, whilst maintaining a flexible modular design that is easy to install. The e-chain comes in various installation applications, including chain-block and e-chain drum versions. ATEX solutions are also available.

Video of the Week – igus e-chain for offshore applications

igus currently holds the record for manufacturing the largest plastic energy chain in the world, the E4.350. This e-chain is predominantly used for the movement of large, heavy, stiff cables such as those used on oil platforms. Research and development is being undertaken to produce a larger one.

The e-chain is resistant to extreme temperatures, such as those seen on the ocean floor. Typical applications for the e-chain include offshore, drilling rigs and ships and harbours. To learn more about igus offshore applications please go to www.igus.co.uk/EChainInOffshore

Video of the Week – E2 micro e-chains

small, light and even stronger

E2 micro e-chains have been carefully developed by plastics expert, igus, to be the smallest, lightest and most stable of the e-chain range. Available in seven widths, these e-chains feature improved strength and, with small inner heights and bending radii, are ideal for a wide range of applications horizontal, sideways, vertical and rotating applications anywhere where space is critical.

In order to allow cables and hoses to be quickly and easily fitted, E2 micro e-chains feature snap open cross bars along the outer or inner radii. They can be quickly and easily opened with the opener tool, which is provided with every order.   

Take a look at the designation section on the igus website for more information on the E2 micro chain: http://bit.ly/1g89XRJ.

The new E4.1 light e-chain from energy chain specialist igus meets the engineers and designers’ need for a strong but light e-chain. It combines the benefits of the E4.1 series’ ruggedness and the E2/000 system’s easy accessibility. When used with “extender” crossbars, this e-chain has even more potential for carrying larger hoses.

A 4-piece light-weight structure, the E4.1 light chain can be fitted with snap-open “extender” crossbars on both sides along the inner and outer radius. This e-chain then offers a large interior-exterior dimension ratio and is therefore perfect for easy filling with large hoses.

Designed with igus’ customers in mind, the E4.1 light extender chain also provides a cost effective but specialised solution. Thanks to igus’ online calculator, engineers and designers can easily find the right e-chain, by entering simple application data.
