Güdel linear robot, even more productive with intelligent energy supply

Güdel linear robot, even more productive with intelligent energy supply

With Igus intelligent smart plastic e-chains, cables and plain bearings, companies have the information they need to plan maintenance in advance. Now, manufacturers of machines and systems are incorporating these products to offer enhanced condition monitoring.

Among them is the Swiss company Güdel, using Igus EC.M and EC.W e-chain sensors in its linear robots. “The sensors measure the movement and wear of the four energy chains used and send the measured values via the icom data collector to Güdel’s condition monitoring computer,” explains Richard Habering, head of the smart plastics division at Igus.

By connecting to the Igus cloud, the data is evaluated using AI and machine learning. The integration of the analysed data takes place via the Güdel Condition Monitoring System. “With this tool, the user can monitor the status of the energy chains and rollers in use,” says Daniel Bangerter, head of customer care at Güdel. “Maintenance can be planned by collecting and evaluating the data.”
