igus: The world leader in cables for the energy chain after 25 years02/12/2015
The motion plastics specialist igus revolutionised the cable design for moving applications in e-chains 25 years ago and has been offering motor, control and data cables for specialised moving applications in energy chains through the chainflex brand ever since. The use in energy chains requires specific cable designs to increase the cable's service life and, as a result, the service life of the application. In this area in particular, igus can draw on its experience as market leader for e-chains and on its expertise of more than 50 years with all things plastics-related. "As market leader for e-chains, the advantage at igus is that we develop both energy chains as well as cables. For this reason, we can test and offer both as a system", emphasises Frank Blase, CEO at igus GmbH. igus has had much success in this area: The chainflex business area is exceeding 100 million euros in revenue this year, which makes up more than 20% of the total revenue at igus. With 1,040 cables from stock, the Cologne-based company has the widest product range to offer with respect to energy chain applications. Of these, no less than 3,200 drive cables at seven price points can be fabricated according to 22 manufacturer standards. "The degree of automation in companies is continuously increasing, particularly due to Industry 4.0. At the same time, it is necessary to guarantee an interruption-free flow of data, media and energy", says Frank Blase. "This really motivates us to invest significant resources in innovation, product reliability and fast, worldwide availability, to ensure that our customers receive the best possible ratio of price to reliability."
Because of current order peaks our lead-time will increase temporarily to 6-12 working days for e-chain systems®. We are working intensively on a fast improvement.
