East Providence, R.I. (Manufacturing.net) — igus, a manufacturer of cable carriers, continuous-flex cables, linear bearings, plastic bushings and more, will be showcasing its solutions for a variety of applications at this year’s FABTECH expo, which will be held November 18 to 21, 2013. The company will be located at booth S552.
One system the company will be exhibiting is the Energy Chain Systems RX Energy Tubes, which are nearly 100 percent chip-proof, with a smooth, domed outer contour that ensures all debris simply falls off. The company says these are ideal for rough environments where heavy-duty protection is necessary. The Chainflex CF270-UL-D is designed like a spindle cable, and is ideal for supplying maximum power while staying within the confines of a machine tool. And the Chainflex hybrid servo cables couple energy and data feedback together, which saves space and minimizes costs.
