    Introducing the flexfunction CTS safety switch and the CKS2 key system from Treotham

    Treotham’s new CTS guard locking device from Euchner features a high locking force, compact design and maximum flexibility, making it the perfect choice for applications requiring a high locking force in a confined space. Measuring only 135 x 31 x 31 millimeters in size, it delivers a maximum locking force of 3,900 N for universal use. The CTS can be mounted in three orientations, permitting flexible use for hinged and sliding doors.

    New lightweight layer gripper ZLW: slim for the cobot

    With Schmalz’s new weight-reduced layer gripper from Treotham, cobots can also palletize lighter workpiece layers. It is not only slim, but also efficient: Schmalz optimally matches the suction grid, gripper dimensions and all other components to the handling task, thus minimizing the power required for vacuum generation.

    Evolution of the trapezoidal thread: new igus standard from Treotham achieves 82 percent efficiency

    Even tried and tested structures have potential for improvement. One example is the classic trapezoidal thread, which igus has refined. Thanks to a special geometric interaction between the lead screw nut, which requires no lubrication or maintenance, and the metal lead screw, dryspin technology promises a long service life, improved efficiencies, low wear and less movement noise.

    Freedom for articulated arm robots: igus’ 7th axis from Treotham extends the working space by up to 400 percent

    Articulated arm robots can travel over six metres, quadrupling their working space: the 7th axis is now compatible with all lightweight articulated arm robots worldwide thanks to a simple Plug & Play kit. So far, models from Universal Robots, Epson and the igus robolink series from Treotham have benefited from this increased mobility. Now Omron, Franka Emika, Doosan, Yuanda Robotics and many other lightweight robotics suppliers are joining the list.

    Compact rotation with plastic: igus develops a new cost-effective rotary energy chain

    It is light, compact, and made entirely of plastic: the new PRM (Polymer Rotation Module) rotary igus energy supply system from Treotham. Specifically for tight rotational movements in cables and hoses, igus has now developed a system consisting of a polymer energy chain and a low-friction plastic guide trough. Users can increase the service life of their machines and systems with buying costs up to 73% less than those of a comparable steel guide trough. The new e-chain system expands the igus range of complete sets that can be ordered directly from Treotham Automation.

    New MGB2 modular EtherCAT P with FSoE

    If there is one area where applications are becoming ever-more complex, it’s safety engineering. EUCHNER has not only kept up with this trend with its Multifunctional Gate Box (MGB) safety door system, but has gone a step further by employing modular design to make the MGB2 Modular fully customisable for maximum optimisation. The modular system features a separate locking module, bus module and submodules, making it suitable for implementing a wide range of additional functions.
