ATX 16 - igus Robotic Solutions and More on Display at the 2016 Pacific Design and Manufacturing Show

igus will showcase a wide range of solutions for robotic systems, design engineering, and more in booth 3889 at the upcoming show, running February 9-11th.

At the upcoming Pacific Design and Manufacturing trade show, running from February 9-11th at the Anaheim Convention Center, igus will have a range of engineered plastic solutions for advanced manufacturing in booth 3889.

The main focus of the igus booth will be the Triflex range of robotic cable management and retraction systems, including working systems on a full-scale industrial robot. The Triflex system allows for multi-axis cable protection and guidance in all directions. The new Robolink D system, a low-cost and lightweight robotic arm created by igus, will also be in operation, using self-lubricating worm gears and igus stepper motors.

To aid in the long-lasting reliability of robotic systems, Chainflex continuous-flex robotic and Ethernet cables are available, specially designed and extensively tested for multi-axis moving applications.
Self-lubricating PRT slewing ring bearings, which aid in the functionality of many systems, including Robolink D, as well as wide range of tribologically optimized plastic bearing solutions will be available to view and sample. Linear solutions, including DryLin E motorized linear drive systems will also be on display.

A number of product and industry experts from igus will be on hand throughout the show, along with a number of product samples, extensive engineering and product information, and more.
