For almost 20 years, igus® has been among the front-runners for energy supply systems in clean rooms. igus® offers a wide assortment of IPA-tested e-chains®, chainflex® cables and drylin® linear bearings that enables straightforward assembly, machine-specific movements and energy supplies in cleanrooms. Since the quality requirements for cleanroom technology applications are constantly growing, both, in terms of customer expectations as well as testing standards, igus® is continuously working on improving its products.
And since igus® dry-tech® products work completely without external lubrication, they are the ideal ex-works solution for applications where cleanliness is the top priority.
Mechanically reliable durability for long travel paths, in the machine tool, on the robot or for tensile stress. Successfully tested and with clear guarantee statement. Up to 10 Gbps/600 MHz, tested with 40 million strokes and a guaranteed service life of 36 months.
Gantries are a combination of several linear axes to realize a multidimensional movement. For various tasks, igus® offers portals as a surface, line and room portal. igus® gantries contain pre-configured drylin® linear modules / axes with NEMA step motors as well as all components necessary for self-assembly.
igus® tests each of its products in elaborate and careful test procedures in its own laboratory. Only what meets the standards of our laboratory is subjected to the Fraunhofer IPA tests based on them.
The evidence is supplied by a new expert's report from IPA, the Fraunhofer Institute, by which numerous igus® products are certified with the best classification possible, ISO Class 1:
The Fraunhofer Institute IPA has tested several igus® energy chains series according to DIN EN ISO 14644-1. In this way, precise statements on the cleanroom application potentials of almost all popular igus® e-chain® systems are available now.
All products used in clean rooms need to fulfill the same requirement: During operation, as few particles as possible should be emitted into the surrounding area. This is especially applicable for moving machine parts. To generate as less particles as possible, high abrasion resistance is called for - and is thereby also an indicator for long service life.
