igus shows all at Southern Manufacturing

At this year's Southern Manufacturing event in Farnborough, igus UK will be launching the latest additions to its industry-leading energy chains and chainflex continuous-flex cables, as well its maintenance free range of plain, spherical and linear bearings.

On show to visitors of Southern Manufacturing for the first time is the complete linear drive offering from igus that brings together drylin E actuators and polymer bearings and combines with a NEMA certified motor.

Lubricant and maintenance free the new small, compact, extremely light and quiet drylin E SAW-0630 linear axis is ideal for simple format adjustments, feed movements and the handling of lightweight components. It is, via a trapezoidal or high-helix thread leadscrew, available in numerous pitches from 1.5 mm to 15 mm (design size 1040 up to 50 mm). The compact, light and quiet system is available ex-stock, individually configured to the required length.

An innovative compact energy chain system, twisterband is able to turn up to eight times around its own axis. By staying close to the axis, this compact, cost-effective system can guide energy, data and other media safely through 3,000 degrees at high rotating speeds with little wear. Designed for any rotating energy supply applications such as machine tools and robots, twisterband is also well-suited for special machine designs, such as radar and telescope systems, as well as medical equipment and amusement park rides.
