igus c-chain for continuous movement
igus UK has announced its new c-chain energy chain system, which allows machine signal and media to be carried in continuous motion.
The intelligent c-chain design concept originated from a solution igus developed to eliminate the empty runs that conventional pick and place applications suffer from due to linear motion.
The new system is said to move in a continuous circular motion, smoothly and without vibration at a continual speed of between 2 and 3m/s – creating an increase in productivity of up to 30%.
Already used in industrial pick and place applications, the low cost c-chain kit can be implemented into a much broader market - such as outdoor signs, arena displays and film and theatre sets.
As with all igus components and systems that are made of tribological plastics, the c-chain kit is maintenance and lubrication free for a longer life.
