Those who deal with cables or use cables in their applications are often familiar with the so-called corkscrew. Today we would like to explain what a corkscrew is, how it develops and of course how it can be avoided.
When people think of the term “bus”, most of them immediately think of a school bus or public transport bus. But in our case this has nothing to do with the vehicle. BUS is an abbreviation that stands for “Binary Unit System”.
The new 2020 chainflex catalogue is ready!
“We replace the cables on the machine every six weeks. Well, that’s normal!” We hear sentences like these time and again in our industry. Very few users are aware that this condition is not normal. Choosing the right cable makes the difference. In this article I would like to explain why flexible cables are not […]
Tested chainflex cable for torsion angles up to 360 degrees safely transmits data to 6-axis robots In large-scale manufacturing industrial robots are everywhere. They provide a fast automation of processes and thereby ensure cost-efficiency in companies. igus has now developed a new long-lasting Ethernet cable, the CFROBOT8.PLUS, to ensure that robot communication between the axes, […]
