In this video, we take a tour through the igus® chainflex® test lab in Cologne, the world’s largest facility for testing moving cables.
As part of its commitment to customer success, igus® has operated an extensive test lab for more than 20 years. This state-of-the-art 2750m² facility carries out more than 2 billion test cycles per year. Conducting more than 700 tests simultaneously, four test robots put igus® chainflex® cables and energy chain® carriers through their paces in a series of demanding material tests, including torsion testing and -40ºC cold chamber test stations.
More than 5000 measurement locations are monitored continuously, taking 1.4 million electrical measurements per year. As well as rigorous and comprehensive testing to igus® standards, customer-specific application testing is also undertaken. All tests are systematically documented; this exacting process is part of how igus® is able to offer customers a 36-month guarantee on its cables and carriers, giving them the reassurance that their system will deliver a reliable long life.
