Innovations take centre stage


At the 10th Anniversary of the Advanced Engineering show igus will present its latest innovations, developed through pre-tested products designed specially to fulfil the needs of engineers.

This was the case when teams from igus developed a honeycomb structure to provide unique strain relief for its energy supply systems. Cables and hoses are simply inserted into a honeycomb, called the CFU, and then closed. Compared to cable tie-wraps or other strain relief solutions, the engineer can save about 80 percent assembly and engineering time. Once the cables and hoses are inserted into the CFU and closed, the outer walls of the honeycomb cavities lie gently and uniformly around the cables. The honeycomb system is assembled in seconds and is also extremely flexible, as new cables can be inserted or replaced by hand.

“We always work closely with our customers to see how best our products can be placed to fulfil their specific needs,” explains Matthew Aldridge, Managing Director, igus. “In doing so we have often developed new products that either extend the capabilities of a previous model or build upon the product so that it satisfies different needs for different engineers.”

Members of the igus team will be available on stand D32 to answer questions and demonstrate the potential applications of its bearing products and cable management systems, as well as provide insight into the full range of igus products.
