The offered energy-tubes belongs to the R2.1 series which are among the best sealed energy-tubes for use in moving applications. Features: The tubes of the R2.1 series can be opened very easily, which makes assembly work even easier etc.
Igus, the motion plastics specialist, has developed thin ring bearings in accordance with DIN 625 for small installation spaces and where very low weight is crucial. The xiros plastic ball bearings are, for example, suitable for a wide range of control systems in vehicles due to the freedom from lubrication and maintenance as well as very low friction.
Igus GmbH has developed a heavy-duty version of the drylin T Linear Guide. This is also available with adjustable clearance in order to achieve greater adjusting precision even in difficult environments. The heavy-duty guide carriages TW-12-20 can be adjusted seamlessly in the bearing clearance.
The Bearing Material, Idlidur Z510 stood up to permanent loads of far more than 100 MPa while in continuous motion. It can also take on particularly heavy loads, even while pivoting and with additional edge loads.
Shielded cables subjected to torsional movements are still plagued by many failures. Energy and data chain expert, igus, has now developed a shielded 3D cable, the individual wires of which can withstand high levels of torsion.
