igus® latest solutions for extreme conditions

igus® Stand 3A130 Offshore Europe, Aberdeen, UK 8th – 11th September, 2015 At this year’s Offshore Europe, igus® will be showcasing a variety of its products that meet the demands of the oil & gas industry. Focuses will include DNV GL certified chainflex® cables and complementary e-chain® cable carriers, as well as the new iglidur® X bearing range and multi-purpose tribo-tape. Visitors to the igus® stand, 3A130, will be able to see demonstrations of these products and have the opportunity to meet industry experts to discuss the latest solutions. igus® energy chains are manufactured from high performance plastics, making them tough, resistant to corrosion and impact and offering high UV, temperature and precipitation stability. Also available in ATEX-ESD compliant versions, the heavy-duty e-chain® has been tested to function consistently, even at extreme temperatures and in adverse weather conditions, making them the perfect solution for supplying energy right to the ocean floor. In addition, igus® will be showing its DNV GL (Det Norske Veritas and Germanischer Lloyd) certified chainflex® cables. A number of these cables are also NEK606 offshore rated, meaning they are halogen free and mud resistant. Offering high chemical resistance, great compressive strength and low humidity absorption, the abrasion resistance of iglidur® X bearings increases with temperature, making them extremely wear resistant over the entire operating temperature range, from -100°C to +250°C. Available in sizes up to 120mm diameter, iglidur® X is offered as cylindrical sleeve bearings, plain bearings with flange and thrust washers. Another new product being unveiled during the show will be iglidur® tribo-tape. Made of a tribologically optimised plastic, the tape is an extremely wear,...

New and improved igus chainflex cables

Energy chain and cable specialist igus has expanded and improved its chainflex CF211 and CF111.D series of measuring cables developed for dynamic equipment applications. The cables feature an enhanced core and shield structure that offers a much longer service life and makes them easier to install, reducing assembly times by as much as 30%. Specifically for use in analogue and digital measuring systems, such as DRIVE-CLiQ*, igus offers the CF211.028, CF111.028.D and CF113.028.D – each representing a different level of mechanical properties. The CF211 has a PVC outer jacket, which allows a range of operating temperatures from -5 to +70 degC; it is well-suited to applications in warehouse storage and handling systems, processing tools and packaging machines. The CF111.D features a halogen-free, flame-resistant PUR outer jacket; this cable is specially designed for short travel applications. At the high-end, the CF113.D boasts a PUR inner jacket and an extremely bend resistant braiding of tinned copper wires with an optical coverage of 90%; this cable structure is ideal for use in fast, handling, clean room and low temperature applications down to -20degC.   The CF211 and CF111.D series comes in a variety of sizes and follow the DESINA colour coding. igus’ chainflex cables also conform to, and are in accordance with, various cable industry standards. Like all other igus chainflex cables, the CF111, CF111.D and CF113.D data cables are available ex-stock within 24 hours or the same day, without cutting costs or minimum order quantity.

Free flexible cable guide and sample box from igus

igus UK, the energy chain and cable specialist, has launched a free guide and sample box for its reliable, highly flexible and cost-effective chainflex cables.  With over 950 cables to choose, igus supplies cables for almost all requirements in dynamic applications and the guide has been designed to help electrical engineers specify the most effective cable for movement. The simple-to-use guide from igus outlines the common failure modes of cables and explains how chainflex cables are designed to overcome these.  Full technical details of various chainflex cable types, from copper to fibre optic cables, for measuring systems, robot, servo, power, bus, data and control systems are in the included catalogue.  The catalogue also gives many real life application tests and results.  In addition, samples of different chainflex cables are included, clearly showing the special construction that guarantees the cables will last millions of cycles in moving applications.  The whole box offers engineers a clear understanding of why igus claims “chainflex lasts”. igus has been developing its cables for over 20 years and its chainflex cables have been designed with demanding moving applications in mind, giving reliable performance with high cycle rates, compact design spaces, and very small bending radii of up to four times the outer cable diameter.  chainflex continuous-flex cables are ideal for use in igus energy chain cable carriers and have also been tested extensively to validate service life over time. chainflex cables are classified according to criteria for requirements, oil-resistance and travel distance. Manufactured from PVC, oil-resistant PVC and abrasion resistant jacket materials such as PUR, and TPE for extreme loads, the cables are reliable with...
