We are still looking for innovative energy supply solutions for numerous applications, from handling energy and data safely on the arm of an industrial robot to an outdoor camera system that films high-speed track events without interruption and vibration.
“Even today, new and unusual applications are still being developed, often with fast speeds or complicated rotary movements,” says Justin Leonard, the-chain director, igus. “The competition also provides a unique opportunity for us to know the full capability of our products.”
The winners will be selected by an expert jury and the prize will be awarded at Hannover Fair 2018. The winners of the top prize will take home the golden vector trophy as well as 5,000 euros. The competition is open to anyone who has novel or challenging applications with energy chains, irrespective of what branch of industry they come from.
We will be displaying a vast range of products and systems for Subsea applications at this year’s Subsea Expo on the 7th – 9th February at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference centre. If you visit our stand (105) you will get to see our giant E4 energy chain that can withstand exposure to ice, storms, salt water, oil, and mud. It can bear heavy loads and features an easy to remove cross bar so cables and hoses can be added or replaced quickly. The E4.350 is also suitable for vertical applications, and can move nearly 15 m up and down guiding and protecting any heavy hydraulic hoses and cables.
Along with cable management systems, we will be showcasing drylin® W linear guide system, which is ideal for Subsea environments. Its available in 316 stainless steel, the guide system is corrosion resistant and can also withstand extreme temperatures as high as 250 degrees. Additional features include low noise and weight, as well as resistance to the ingress of dirt. It can be delivered pre-assembled for easy installation.
Throughout the show, our team will be available on stand 105 to take visitors through the benefits and potential applications of their bearing products and cable management systems. To arrange an appointment, please email Hannah Durrant: firstname.lastname@example.org and for further information, please visit: www.igus.co.uk/offshore or call igus directly on 01604 677240.
When founder Günter Blase first said: “show me your problem part and I’ll find you the right solution” this has become the motto of us ever since. With more than 3000 employees between our head office in Germany and 35 subsidiaries, and representative partners in more than 80 other countries, we certainly do have a global reach – giving customers the local service they deserve.

In this week’s video of the week, Artur Peplinski, vice president of igus® in Germany, takes us through some of the highlights of the 112 innovations and product range extensions presented during this year’s Motek show in Stuttgart.
Last week we formally opened our newly-expanded premises. Our engineering support facility has almost doubled in size from 672sqm to 1,000sqm with the creation of a new upper floor that accommodates our growing sales and technical team. Our expansion comes a year after we celebrated 25 years of igus® within the UK.
We would like to thank to Deputy Mayor Councilor Tony Ansell for cutting the ribbon and we would like to share some images from the day with you.
