The greatest potential is often in the details. With the new chainflex® CASE – ship‘n store by igus, you can achieve savings on multiple levels:
Lean management is an approach to continuous process optimisation. It includes the efficient design of the entire value chain. Using various methods, procedures and principles of thought, it pursues the goal of harmonising processes and producing a holistic production system without waste (lean production).
The focus is thereby on value-added activities for which the customer pays. In everyday work, however, actions that cannot contribute to the increase in value or even cause additional costs are performed. This is often the result of inefficient processes, which can lead to waiting times, unnecessary communication and complicated work steps, as can be seen in the adjacent diagram. This is where the new chainflex case comes in, allowing the customer to focus on his value-adding activities, because it significantly reduces costly processes in transport and ordering.
The chainflex cables are cables for moving applications in energy chains or for robot applications, dependable with a 36-month guarantee. All cables can be ordered from us as standard, from 1m without cutting charge or minimum quantity surcharges.
We issue a 36 month guarantee on our chainflex cables with confidence, as we are able to make reliable predictions about the service life of our cables due to over 30 years of experience and 700 parallel running test trials in our 3,800 m² test laboratory. This is supported by UL, an international testing organisation.
Energy chains are mechanical machine elements. They are there to guide and protect energy, data and signals that have to withstand the most diverse environmental influences. The decisive factor here is the symbiosis of the components moving against each other.
