igus to showcase smart plastics at Manufacturing Management Show

At this year's Manufacturing Management Show, taking place 23-24th November at Ricoh Arena, Coventry, igus will showcase its next evolution for motion plastics: Industry 4.0-ready smart plastics. Comprising smart cables, energy chains and linear guides, smart plastics monitor themselves constantly, providing performance data and early warning of critical wear.

Managing director of igus, Matthew Aldridge, will present a workshop at the show entitled "˜igus Smart Plastics for Industry 4.0' on Wednesday 23rd November at 10:15. About the workshop, he says: "Manufacturing solutions must keep pace with the speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness demanded by modern smart factories and Industry 4.0 production capabilities. By deploying smart plastics, customers can increase plant availability, maximise uptime and reduce costs through automated condition monitoring and predictive maintenance."

igus will also have on show its drylin W linear guides. Combining high flexibility in design with simple installation, these linear guides offer best-in-class friction and wear resistance. Without the need for lubricants, the system is insensitive to dirt, thereby increasing reliability and reducing maintenance costs. They exhibit low coefficients of friction in dry operation, high resistance to corrosion and wear, and provide for a flexible utilisation of installation space.

Members of the igus team will be available at the Manufacturing Management Show on stand F16 to answer questions and demonstrate the 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.
