igus Schweiz GmbH
Energy Chain Systems
E-ChainSystem® is like the umbilical cord of modern machines. They take care of the supply of energy, data and signals and are for this reason continuously in motion. We look upon it as our task to offer you all the components - E-Chain®, all cables and every accessory - as a single system and be accountable for the function.
Managing without lubrication is the dream of every design engineer. The igus® polymer plain bearings make it a reality. After research spanning decades, an accurate calculation of the service life of polymer plain bearings is possible today.
For the customer, the production must go on without problems and an energy supply system should accordingly function smoothly. That presupposes the effortless performance of all components and the cables inserted in them. igus® was the first company to develop complete E-ChainSystem®. Chainflex® cables and E-Chain® are supplied from one source and - according to application - offered with a system guarantee. The design principles that today prevent machine downtimes in factories all over the world have originated and emerge from the know-how and elaborate series of research that have steadily grown since 1989.
Polymer specialist igus® offers robot developers and laboratories a light weight, maintenance and corrosion-free range of connection of joints. For example, humanoid systems, general lightweight construction, handling/automation and camera tripods. The plastic joints can rotate and pivot freely (draw-wire technology, 4 cords per joint). The pneumatic, hydraulic and all data cables are laid through the aluminum/carbon fiber/plastic articulated arms to reliably control the sensors and sensory organs.
No expensive milling, no cutting, no tinkering, no fiddling any more – all custom made from one source!
