Matthew Aldridge, managing director of igus®, introduces one solution to the UK’s productivity puzzle – by intellectually outsourcing secondary tasks, OEMs can concentrate on their core skills.

“We are experiencing a rise in demand for subassemblies that can be slotted directly into industrial machines,” says Aldridge.

Customised readychain® is a more cost effective way to order multiple components, because the cables and hoses come pre-assembled in the energy chain. Advantages of choosing readychain® are clear to see, in terms of reducing cost and time for the OEM, eliminating inventory costs, and increasing factory capacity. In addition, readychain® is fully tested and certified and delivered with a guarantee.
