Do plastic energy chains work for Machine tool applications under hot chips?

Shery George | 28 September 2022

The materials with which igus e-chains are made have to go under a great deal of stress such as pressure and tensile strain, and they are made to be abrasion-resistant, very sturdy and have a high modulus of elasticity, whereby they must also exhibit stable behaviour at high and low temperatures and be resistant to […]

Importance of Interior separation in energy chains: Different types and how to find the right one

Shery George | 23 September 2022

The interior separation is an important component of energy chains and serves to separate or subdivide different media within the guide. Because the service life of the system can only be increased with the correct arrangement of the cables. In this article, you will learn more about the different components of interior separation and how you can find the […]

Why do High-Speed Laser & Printing Machines need E6 Low Noise series?

Shery George | 21 September 2022

System E6 offers many advantages besides its long service life. It features extremely quiet, low-vibration operation, complementing the low-vibration linear drive concept in high-speed & low noise machine tool applications. It minimizes the polygon effect which can occur during the rolling motion of an e-chain®. The ultra-low noise levels have been confirmed in a recent report […]

Selection of the Suitable mounting bracket

Shery George | 19 October 2021

Almost all mounting brackets are available in two variants. The first pivoting, the second is locking. At this point, many design engineers wonder when they should use the pivoting and when the locking version. Pivoting Type  Locking Type Pivoting mounting brackets are standard for gliding and horizontally unsupported applications: But why is that? The pivoting […]

Distribution Rules for Hydraulic hoses in the energy chain

Shery George | 19 October 2021

Machine tools very often have hydraulic hoses that are guided in e-chains – for clamping devices, coolant circuits and other applications. For hoses, as for electrical cables, there are several items to consider in the design and fitting of energy chains. Rule 1 : Whether Crossbars every link or every second link ? If a […]

Whether Polymer e-chain can be used for 10 Meter and more unsupported travel length without Sag?

Shery George | 2 September 2021

A gliding application frequently looks better than unsupported energy chain. This is not just because the straight line of the upper run, but also because the sag leading to the chain drop is eliminated compared to unsupported application. Unsupported systems will be better to use the space at the end of the travel (lesser Parking […]

Can 3D printers replace machine tools?

Shery George | 2 September 2021

You need a metallic component. You can quickly import the software model and the part comes out of the 3D printer in no time at all. Swarf doesn’t occur. There is practically no waste. This quickly leads to the question: can 3D printers replace classic machine tools? This blog examines this question for three relevant […]

3D Rotational Movement in machine tool

Shery George | 2 September 2021

Lathes, spindles and machine tools nearly always involve some form of rotation. The guidance of electric cables and hydraulic and pneumatic hoses is usually a difficult challenge. Even though an individual solution is needed for each machine, igus can offer Six varieties of Optimal Solution as below: Coiling of e-chain Coiling of e-chain with reverse […]

How to improve the Technology in chain Tool Magazine with plain bearing?

Shery George | 2 September 2021

Wherever High precision range is required in the machine tool, plain bearings made of plastic reach their limits. However, in places where this is not the case, they can reduce costs and minimize maintenance. A typical place where our plain bearings show their full strength is in chain magazines of tool changing systems. The main […]
