A compact, quick and sensitive piece of equipment takes hot-glass products - with temperatures around 932º F - that emerge from molding and arranges them on a conveyor belt to go into an oven.
A Triflex® R cable carrier is used because it has excellent mechanical properties and the smooth inner contours equate to a long service life for cables. Triflex® R can be separated and reconnected at any point without having to cut or reconnect the end-to-end steel cables, for example. In case of a cable failure due to external influences, the snap-open mechanism enables lightning fast replacement and minimal downtime.
The igus® Triflex® R system supplies the axles. igus® supplies the complete cable carrier system, including cable carrier, connectors, and mounting brackets. The complete pre-harnessed system is known as ReadyChain®.
