Igus showcase robotics and linear guide
solutions at Engineering Design Show 2016

Engineering plastics specialist demonstrate maintenance-free solutions for moving applications.

igus, the motion plastics specialist, returned to one of the UK's must-attend events for engineering, electronics and embedded design, the Enginering Design Show at Coventry's Ricoh Arena in October 2016. During the exhibition, igus showcased the latest drylin linear guide systems, as well as cable management and energy supply solutions for industrial robots, on its stand..

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 solutions which are resistant to dust, dirt and extreme conditions. Thanks to extensive testing in its 2,750m² test lab, igus is able to accurately predict the service life of its motion plastics, offering reliability guarantees.

Igus exhibited its comprehensive range of tribopolymer bearings, continuous flex cables and cable management systems on its stand. Also on display - its drylin W linear guide system. This system 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-anodized 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 included energy supply systems developed specially for sophisticated multi-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments.

"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," says Matthew Aldridge, managing director, igus.

Throughout the show, members of the igus team were available 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.
