Motion plastics specialist igus will be showing a wide range of components and solutions for automation and robotics at the upcoming Automate 2017 Trade Show in booth 2221. Product experts will be on hand, and product demonstrations, inducing a Fanuc 6 axis robotic arm featuring the igus triflex RSE cable retraction system, featuring lightweight yet rugged triflex R multi-axis cable carrier.
For lighter duty robotic applications, the cost-effective robolink D system offers a modular, customizable solution. The system is made up of self-lubricating joints and worm gears, run via stepper motor and available in three sizes. Components for all types of applications, including self-lubricating bearings, linear gantries, and more, will all be on display with samples and engineering information available.

The Less is More Approach to Robotic Cable Management
The less is more approach to cable management is a best practice that robotics engineers and integrators can apply. It centers on designing cable management systems for six-axis robots including cables, hose, tubing, carrier, and connectors in three separate sections.
Plastic Bushings for the Automotive Industry
Plastic bushings can be used in numerous automotive applications, from simple car-seat systems, to under-the-hood applications subject to high thermal stress. Convertible tops, hinges, seats, chassis, windshield wipers, steering systems, foot pedals, transmissions, throttle bodies, turbochargers, and engine compartments are other areas in which these bearings can be used.
Say Goodbye to Seizing
Bearings must be able to withstand a high amount of wear, particularly in heavy-duty, industrial applications in the construction or agricultural industries. For these types of applications, many designers are surprised to learn that plastic bearings can be an ideal alternative for metal bearings for a number of reasons.
The True Cost of Bearing Lubrication
Understand the hidden and unrealized costs of lubricating and re-lubricating a bearing. Learn how improper bearing lubrication can increase expenses exponentially. Discover how dry-running, self-lubricating bearings can make machines operate better and reduce your budget.
