The 41,000 sq. ft. igus® test facility- the largest in the industry- is where chainflex® innovations are born. It is here where two billion test cycles occur annually to extend service life, eliminate maintenance, reduce costs and optimize overall performance of the cables. Individual cables, complete systems and even customer applications, upon request, are tested under real-world conditions. Factors including travel directions, torsion and abrasion-resistance are also examined.
As a baseline, igus® primarily assesses 4 different types of tests with the objective of providing the best possible chainflex® cable:
1) Material tests on conductors, insulation and jackets
2) Inspections on new superstructures, manufacturing processes and other related impacts on durability
3) In-process quality tests according to certain selection algorithms
4) Long-term service life tests to determine actual maximum service life before failure is detected
