With the latest generation of motors from Bosch Rexroth, the demands on the components to be connected are also increasing. With the new pre-assembled readycable hybrid cables, smaller bend radii as well as centimeter-precise travels can be implemented. This leads to significant savings potential in installation space and construction costs.
With already more than 4,600 drive cables, igus is now expanding its catalogue range, which is available at any time, with all its advantages (36-month guarantee), no minimum order quantity, no cutting charges, etc. The pre-assembled hybrid cables suitable for Bosch Rexroth consist of a servo cable for power transmission and an integrated encoder cable (also known as One Cable technology). As ready-to-connect readycable with low cabling requirements, they are ready for immediate use and are therefore used in numerous industries and machine tools such as material handling, in conveyor systems or in plant construction.
In hardly any other industry are throughput times as important as in the machine tool industry. Cutting out individual work steps means that considerable savings in process costs can be achieved. The design engineers at Hartford, the largest manufacturer of CNC machining centres in Taiwan, know this as well.
In its robotic machining centres, Hartford relies on completely harnessed energy chain systems including numerous readycable cables from igus. This cuts out many process steps for the manufacturer, reducing assembly time from several weeks to just half a day. At the same time, customers can always depend on receiving a safe and reliable solution from a single source.
Harnessed and ready-to-connect cables in energy chains or connected to robots need special properties if they are to function reliably over a long period of time in spite of large numbers of cycles, high speeds, rates of acceleration and challenging ambient conditions.
The chainflex cables used for readycable products are intensively tested in the company's own 4,100ft2 test laboratory, the industry's largest test lab worldwide. The harnessed readycable cables guarantee a long service life of at least 36 months thanks to extensive tests and quality inspections in the company's own laboratory and more than 25 years of experience in the manufacture and harnessing of cables.
