Smart and maintenance-free solutions offer long service life

igus e-chains are used in warehouses all over the world, from pallet storage and retrieval units (SRUs) to automated small parts stores and multi-shuttle systems. 

And, when it comes to other intralogistics machines and equipment, such as industrial vehicles, driverless transport systems (DTSs), lifting tables and palletisers, igus will find the best possible solution using energy chains, cables and iglidur plastic bearings.

In this VIDEO, you can see how igus’ smart plastics are now being integrated into warehouses. 

For the first time, smart chainflex cables monitor the health of linear guide systems, cables and energy chains continuously.

This valuable data is collected and analysed to give warehouse operators timely warnings for maintenance or repair, ensuring unscheduled and costly shutdowns are eliminated. This added intelligence also brings new possibilities to extend product service life beyond the warranty period thereby avoiding early replacement.
