Insights from the igus® lab
Seven basic rules for good cables
The chainflex® laboratory concentrates on special experiments and tests that are not covered by the relevant normal standards and laboratories but are absolutely necessary for determining the service life and functional capability of moving cables.
Where is igus® hiding?
Robot for drilling platform
High costs, numerous manual procedures and a large safety risk for workers: a new robot-aided solution compensates for all these negatives associated with work on an oil drilling platform. An autonomous drilling platform system has been developed for use on land or at sea.
