FABTECH - Motion Plastic Solutions for the Fabricating and Metalworking Industries

A range of high-strength, reliable solutions from plastics expert igus on display at FABTECH 2015 in Chicago

East Providence, RI November 03, 2015 -- At the upcoming 2015 FABTECH trade show, November 9-11 at Chicagos McCormick Place, motion plastics specialist igus will have a wide range of products and solutions for the fabricating and metalworking industries. A number of cables and cable carriers, as well as a selection of high-strength plastic bearings will be exhibited in booth N19103.


On display

At the show, igus will demonstrate a number of their industrial solutions, including their innovative Triflex R multi-axis cable carrier, along with optional retraction system, in action on an industrial robotic arm. Triflex Rs unique design allows for flexible movements on robotic arm systems, while providing excellent protection for cables and hoses. The Triflex RSE retraction system integrates igus DryLin linear guide systems to create a lightweight and cost effective retraction system for robotic cable packages.

High-strength Energy Chain cable carriers will also be on display at the show, along with samples and product information. igus E-Chains are able to withstand high temperatures and forces, and offer resistance to dirt, debris, and chemicals.

Also in the igus booth will be a selection of dry-tech self-lubricating bearing solutions, including iglide PRT slewing ring bearings, DryLin linear slide tables, and range of barstock material options available for prototyping or creating custom bearings.
