igus, the motion plastics specialist, will be exhibiting its solutions for demanding moving applications at this year’s Advanced Engineering Show, 2-3rd November 2016, NEC Birmingham.

Whether in the aerospace or automotive industry, when it comes to weight savings, design engineers increasingly rely on carbon fibre. To meet the demands in this field, igus developed a carbon fibre drylin W rail, which will be on display at The NEC, stand H41.

Visitors to the stand will also be able to see new Industry 4.0-enabled technologies and their applications. Smart plastics are an evolution of proven igus cable, energy chain and linear bearing products. Adding embedded intelligence to its motion plastics via the addition of sensing, monitoring and communications, smart plastics allow customers to maximise uptime and reduce costs through condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.

In addition to the above, igus will also be exhibiting a comprehensive range of lightweight, maintenance and corrosion-free robotic solutions, including robolink multi-axis joints for robots.

Members of the igus team will be available on stand H41 to answer questions and demonstrate the potential applications of its bearing products and cable management systems, as well as provide insight into the full range of igus products suitable for their industry and application.
