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.
Daisy, one of our sales assistants did an excellent job of demonstrating our E4.1L e-chain on our stand (D20) at Engineering Design this week.
Watch Daisy in action below!
We have returned to Aberdeen for Offshore Europe where we are showcasing our vast range of offshore solutions.
On our stand (5A21) we will be exhibiting our giant cable carrier, primarily developed for demanding applications on offshore oil-drilling platforms the carrier can withstand exposure to ice, wind, storms, salt water, oil and drilling mud.
E4 energy chains can also bear heavy loads and have easy-to-remove crossbars so cables and hoses can be replaced rapidly. The E4.350 can move nearly 15 m up and down, which guarantees any hydraulic hoses and cables are protected and guided.
Along with cable management systems we are showcasing the drylin® W linear guide system, which is ideal for harsh environments such as underwater or where chemicals are present. Available in 316 stainless steel the drylin® W is corrosion resistant in arduous environments; the guide system can also withstand extreme temperatures uo to 250 degrees C. Additional features include low noise and weight, as well as resistance to dirt.
The iglidur® X bearing material, also on show, is not just resistant to dirt, it is also chemical and petrochemical resistant. This material is ideal for use in pumps, replacing the traditional PTFE-coated bearings that can, in certain circumstances, contaminate the fuel or damage the shaft, ensuring a longer service life.
Throughout the show, our igus® UK team will be available on stand 5A21 to talk you through your bearing product and cable management system needs.
The structure of the aluminium support trays consists of two side plates, equipped with damping profile and a sliding bar, this guarantees quiet, low-wear running of the energy chain. The e-chain can also be connected quickly and efficiently by using the plastic fixed end modules.
Because of its modular design, the system can be adapted easily to fit almost all standard sizes of igus® e-chains. The width can be adjusted using the supplied mounting kit with C-profiles. The aluminium support tray together with matching e-chain and (harnessed) cables are available to order as a complete system, ready for immediate installation and use.
