A glimpse into the chainflex® and e-chain® test laboratoryTake a look at our chainflex® and e-chain® test laboratory, where tests are run with 10 billion cycles every year.
Glimpse into the dry-tech® test laboratoryIn the industry's largest test laboratory, xiros® ball bearings and other products are put through their paces.
Tests in the cold chamberigus® products are tested in the cold chamber at temperatures as low as minus 40 °C. This makes it possible to test the behaviour of high-performance polymers at very low temperatures and guarantee the highest level of reliability and quality. Both energy supplies and chainflex® cables are tested here under extreme conditions, so that they can meet even the most demanding requirements when the time comes.
The specialist for warehousing systems and material handling, SIVAplan GmbH & Co. KG, relies on energy supplies from igus®, as these are not only lightweight but also save on installation time. SIVAplan purchases the guidelok slimline P energy supplies as readychain® from igus®. This means that the e-chains® are delivered ready to install with long-life chainflex® cables. This means that the great deal of work involved in pulling the cables into the e-chain® and testing the finished component is no longer necessary.
DEMATIC is a global leader for automated logistics and uses guidelok guide troughs for the small part storage and retrieval unit (SRU), RapidStore ML20, for uninterrupted transfer of energy and data. For the deployment of the igus® guide trough in this SRU, the main consideration is to provide secure, vertical cable guides operating at high speeds and great stroke heights: the system moves at speeds of up to 5 m/s reaching an installation height of up to 20 metres.
In an interview, Martin Schaich, head of product management at Kardex Mlog, explains why the leading manufacturer of logistics and storage and retrieval units relies on igus® products. Durability and reliability play an important role in the automated warehouse solutions from Kardex Mlog. For this reason, the company makes use of the readychain® harnessing: energy chains are supplied ready for use already equipped with cables and connectors.
