Cable carriers minimise downtime costs

Cable carriers minimise downtime costs
GÜDEL Inc. uses reinforced plastic cable carriers from Igus to minimise downtime across its range of automated systems-from multi-axis robots and press-transfer systems, to factory-automation equipment and gantry robots. The cable carriers guide and protect moving cables and hoses to maximise uptime for GÜDEL's customers. 

GÜDEL uses System E4/100 enclosed Energy Tubes from Igus, which feature hinged, snap-open lids for easy access to cables and hoses. The robust plastic chains are completely resistant to harsh chemicals, hot flying debris, dirt and dust. They withstand high loads, fast accelerations and speeds, and long travels. GÜDEL's machines use up to 70m of Energy Tube and operate at speeds up to 7 m/s. 

GÜDEL also uses Igus' modular System E4/4 Energy Chain cable carriers, which have easily-removable crossbars so that cables and hoses can be added or replaced quickly. System E4 cable carriers are suited to a wide range of demanding applications. 

GÜDEL supplies OEMs across numerous industries, including the automotive and aerospace sectors. "Energy Chain from Igus is the only cable management system we use," said Olivia DuRussel, mechanical design engineer for GÜDEL, "Energy Chain is featured in our catalogue as the exclusive cable carrier used in all our designs."
