Storage without interruption of logistics is essential for fast supply chains. Customers do not want to wait unnecessarily for their goods and for manufacturers, on-time delivery is a decisive competitive advantage. The processes run largely automatically, especially in larger-scale intralogistics. In addition to industrial vehicles, lifting tables and palletisers, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and storage and retrieval units autonomously move unit loads and packages. motion plastics support 24/7 operation because they are lubrication-free and therefore maintenance-free. In addition, our energy chains, cables, plain and linear bearings save weight and installation space, an important aspect especially in high-bay warehouses.
with improved e-chains, new approvals and certificates for chainflex cables and particularly quiet hybrid linear bearings.
You can find more information on these and further product innovations at our 400m2 trade show stand. You can either explore it virtually on your own or together with our industry expert. Make an appointment now for a guided virtual tour with individual consultation:
smart plastics enhance the reliability of your systems. Intelligent products report the maintenance date during operation and integrate seamlessly into your processes.
The specialist for warehousing systems and material handling, SIVAplan GmbH & Co. KG, relies on energy supplies from igus, as these are not only lightweight but also save on installation time. SIVAplan purchases the guidelok slimline P energy supplies as readychain. This means that the e-chains are delivered ready to install with long-life chainflex cables. As a result, the great deal of work involved in pulling the cables into the e-chain and testing the finished component is no longer necessary.
DEMATIC is a global leader for automated logistics and uses guidelok guide troughs for the small part storage and retrieval unit (SRU), RapidStore ML20, for uninterrupted transfer of energy and data. For the deployment of the igus guide trough in this SRU, the main consideration is to provide secure, vertical cable guides operating at high speeds and great stroke heights: the system moves at speeds of up to 5 m/s reaching an installation height of up to 20 metres.
All products are checked in the igus test laboratory, the largest in the industry, under real-life conditions with regard to wear and durability. This enables the precise determination of the service life of the products.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests so as to check the use of the products under completely unique conditions.
