igus publishes cable carrier catalog
March 8, 2011 - A new catalog for igus’ lines of Energy Chain cables carriers and Chainflex continuous-flex cables is now available. The latest edition features a completely revamped, easy-to-use layout and a number of either new or expanded product lines.
Each style of cable carrier now has its own introductory page, which highlights general information, specific features and options, ideal industries for use, and numerous application examples. Other helpful additions include detailed assembly instructions for each cable carrier family and improved access to information about radius, bracket, and strain relief selection.
Some new products include “Guidelok”, a horizontal guiding system designed to keep a cable carrier’s upper and lower runs apart in long-travel applications, “RX40”, a completely chip-proof cable carrier ideal for machine tool applications, and “Twister Trough”, a trough system specifically designed for igus’ line of TwisterChain cable carriers used for circular and spiral movements.
The new catalog also features additions to igus’ range of Chainflex cables, including new video, vision and robot cables and an expanded selection of assembled drive cables.
