EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — igus® will be promoting its Energy Chain® cable carriers at booth #D-4691 during this year’s IMTS show under the slogan ‘Longer Life at Lower Cost’. The cable carriers are designed to house, protect and extend the service life of moving cables and hoses attached to automated machinery.
Other products that will be spotlighted include the fully enclosed E2/000 cable carrier range; E-Z Chains which boast ultra fast cable access via a split crossbar; and igus’ quiet, low vibration System E6 cable carriers that have been tested over more than 220 million cycle strokes to date.
Brand new products on display will include System P4 Energy Chains–for very long travels up to 0.5 miles and speeds up to 22 miles per hour–and the company’s System E4 XXL material, which allows for a 25 percent increase in unsupported span. Visitors will also be able to see a link of the company’s huge new Series E4.350 cable carrier. Currently the largest Energy Chain in the world, it is ideal for demanding applications on heavy duty machinery where thick, heavy and rigid cables need to be guided efficiently.
