igus poised for action at this year's Advanced Engineering Show

Innovative technology demonstrations will be the centrepiece of the igus stand (H41) at the upcoming Advanced Engineering Show. Held on the 1st and 2nd November at the NEC, Birmingham, this year's event is co-hosted with like-minded people from the composites, automotive, aero, performance metals and connected industry sectors.

The key highlight on the stand will be a live demonstration of the igus smart plastics technology, which enables predictive maintenance - the cornerstone of Industry 4.0. The technology warns of potential failure in good time before unplanned and very costly downtimes occur. New additions to the range include the isense EC.RC, a system for monitoring e-chains.

During the show, igus will introduce a new process for the production of 3D printed injection mould tools that allows engineers to solve difficult technical challenges quickly. The entire range of 50 iglidur high-performance plastics is available using this new process, including specialists for high-load, food contact, underwater or high-temperature applications. The material structure of the printed mould tool ensures that it can withstand the high temperatures during the injection moulding process, which means that one mould can produce prototypes and small batches of up to 500 pieces cost-effectively and quickly.

Optimum use of installation space, light weight and high stability - these are just some of the benefits of the E4.1L lean energy chain from igus. Compared with the E4.1, it is about 30 per cent lighter; this brings an additional advantage - a considerable amount of drive power can be saved, making the application more energy efficient. In addition, the E4.1L can accommodate more hoses and cables in a given space envelope. The E4.1L lean energy chain is now available from stock in numerous interior heights and widths. As for the open energy chain, igus also offers an ESD version and even a high-temperature option for the enclosed energy tube to protect against hot chips and debris.

Throughout the show, the igus team will be available on stand H41 at the Advanced Engineering Show to take visitors through the benefits and potential applications of their bearing products and cable management systems.
