igus showcases robotics at Engineering Design Show 2016igus is returning to one of the UK’s must-attend events for engineering, electronics and embedded design, the Enginering Design Show at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena from 19th–20th October 2016. During the exhibition, igus will showcase drylin linear guide systems, as well as cable management and energy supply products for industrial robots, on its stand, D20.

igus motion plastics are used extensively throughout the industry and everyday life in demanding moving applications. Its high-performance engineering plastics are self-lubricating and maintenance free, as well as being lighter and harder-wearing than traditional materials. This results in more reliable and cost-effective products which are resistant to dust, dirt and extreme conditions. Thanks to extensive testing in its 2750m² test lab, igus is able to accurately predict the service life of its motion plastics, offering reliability guarantees.

igus will exhibit its comprehensive range of tribopolymer bearings, continuous flex cables and cable management systems on its stand, D20. Also on display will be its drylin W linear guide system that can be used to help design engineers optimise production processes and reduce costs for dynamic applications. Modular and flexible, drylin W can be preassembled and easily installed, with individual or double hard-anodised aluminium rails. Its dry-running lubrication and maintenance-free iglidur polymer gliders are low noise and weight, dirt-resistant and hard-wearing. Other technology demonstrations will include energy supply systems developed specially for sophisticated multi-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments.

Matthew Aldridge, managing director, igus says: “Dedicated to meeting the growing needs of manufacturers and engineers, igus offers a huge range of innovative engineering plastic bearing and cable management solutions for applications in virtually every industry.”

Throughout the Enginering Design Show, members of the igus team will be available on Stand D20 to demonstrate to visitors the benefits and potential applications of its bearing products and cable management systems, as well as provide insight into the full range of igus products suitable for their industry and application.
