Components in machine tools are exposed to rough operating conditions. Hot chips significantly compromise the service life of cables and hoses. In the medium term, this leads to machine failures and, as a result, expensive downtimes. For every challenge in the machine tool area, igus® offers laboratory-tested solutions that increase your machinery's reliability and reduce the amount of maintenance work. They include energy chains and cables that are used in CNC machining centers, milling machines or grinding machines, for example. Maintenance-free and self-lubricated bearings are used in door-adjusting mechanisms in machine tools, for example. And smart plastics from igus® are used in machine tools in order to avoid unforeseen failures and plant shutdowns.
The automotive supplier from Austria relies on igus® smart plastics for these assembly lines in order to increase fail-safety and implement predictive maintenance.
Ready-to-install "readychain®" energy supply systems from igus® are used in DMU/DMC-160 machining centers of the company DMG MORI at the Deckel MAHO Pfronten site.
