Bearings specialist igus has launched two variants of its compact e-spool energy chain. The heavy-duty (HD) and motor flange versions are more powerful, enabling users to more easily retract and guide cables, while the e-spool range as a whole allows engineers to save space thanks to its small footprint. Quick and easy to install, the e-spool is flexible, providing cables reliably in any direction for travel up to 14m.

Induction is a process by which a magnetised or electrically charged object produces magnetism, an electric charge or an electro-motive force, in another object without being in contact with it. These processes are called magnetic induction when magnetism is produced, electrostatic induction when an electric charge is produced and electromagnetic induction when an electric voltage is produced. This article from Gill Research & Development discusses each of these.

Igus has launches an accessory for e-chains and e-tubes: the CFV strain-relief element. This offers users the chance to relieve cables of strain outside of the chain cross section, even in enclosed energy tubes. The CVF ensures that cables within the moving e-chain do not move around when moving. In addition, with a stepped design to secure cables of different diameters, it ensures simple installation when strain relieving several cables.

At Drinktec 2013 in Munich, Igus will present the Drylin SLT-BB, a spindle-driven linear axis with an even smaller installation height, and the Drylin SLW-25120, a spindle linear module for high loads. Both models have been specifically designed for machines and plant used in the food industry, having to fulfil specific requirements concerning installed size and load-bearing capacities.
