New e-spool flex: guide cables from start to end without slip ring

With the new igus e-spool flex, cables can be moved safely and stowed away quickly. The new cable reel can guide all cables and hoses for the transmission of energy, media and data without interruption. This increases safety at manual workstations and operating panels. For quick installation of the cable reel, igus opted for a worm guide. The cable is inserted in a few simple steps and the e-spool flex is ready for use!
In order to be able to use tools and operating panels flexibly in production, they require appropriately long cables and hoses. However, these are often strewn across the hall floor without any protection and become a tripping hazard. Cable reels with slip rings offer a solution for energy transmission, but are often only available as a complete package with a new cable. The fast transmission of large amounts of data and media is also very complicated with slip rings.

Therefore igus has now developed the e-spool flex. The new cable winder does not require a slip ring at all, so that bus cables and hoses for air and liquids can also be guided without interruption.

MIXO ONE is the new aluminium housings system designed for the wide range of ILME MIXO single sized modules. These robust connector enclosures transform each single MIXO module into a completely independent connector. 
Reduce installation time & wiring effort with new parallel bridges
Industrial automation makes extensive use of sensors and actuators to analyse, control and manage a wide variety of production processes. Our ILME CR BDSH parallel bridges are the answer to the growing demand for the use of these devices, being a technological solution that significantly reduces installation time and wiring effort. Installed on the connectors of the CDSH series, the CR BDSH bridges reduce the number of connections inside a control panel, creating an electrical connection in parallel for low voltage circuits that require, for example, a common extra-low voltage feed, or the return of the neutral circuits or of functional earth. Read more
Transponder-coded guard locking for small doors and flaps
The new compact Euchner CTM transponder-coded guard locking provides process and personnel protection in the smallest of spaces, making it the perfect solution for securing small doors and flaps. At only 120 x 36 x 25 mm in size, the switch is especially easy to integrate into packaging machines. Typical applications include case packers and dosing, filling and sealing machines. The innovative ball actuator supported on an elastomer bearing can even secure doors with extremely small pivoting radii. What’s more, it also guarantees the highest degree of protection IP69. The switch’s special hygienic version makes it suitable for the demanding food and pharmaceutical industries. Read more
Automatic lathe with six spindles wins igus gold vector award
High speeds, long travels and compact installation spaces: every two years, igus GmbH bestows the vector award, with which fascinating and creative energy chain applications are honoured. This year, 266 entries from 32 countries were received. The gold vector was won by the multi-spindle lathe of Gildemeister Italiana S.p.A.. In a very restricted installation space, a total of eight harnessed energy chains guide cables and hoses reliably and safely. The unique energy supply system reduces lead times, set-up times and the effort required for process development and integration, whilst doing justice to the increasing degree of complexity involved. Read more
Cost-effective and lubrication-free mounting of solar panels
Solar plants operate under extreme environmental conditions. We offer dirt-repellent and lubrication-free igus spherical plain bearings that precisely meet these requirements. They impress with their long service life, durability and low costs.The igus ESQM pillow block bearings enable the mounting of solar panels that are constructed with square tubes of different edge lengths.  In many projects, ESQM-110 and ESQM-120 for 110 or 120mm edge length have already proven their worth. Now we also supply ESQM-100 for 100mm edge length. The cost-effective pillow block bearings are UV-resistant, corrosion-free and particularly resistant to dirt and dust. Read more
