Last year, igus® developed an intelligent bearing with high-performance plastics to alert system operators of excessive wear before a machine failure happens.
In this post, read about the CF.Q cable failure sensor system developed by igus®, which detects cable failure in advance.
Energy chain product manager Dan Thompson demonstrates how our smart plastics can prevent unplanned downtime. During ongoing operation, they detect the degree of wear and emit an alarm as soon as repa
The EC.B break detection sensor from igus® smart plastics division reduces the amount of work of maintenance technicians tasked with looking after crane installations and gantries. This applies from c
The CF.Q sensor from the igus smart plastics division indicates changes in the electrical properties; and allows detection of impending cable failure in advance. The electrician then decides what prio
Using the EC.P sensor saves maintenance personnel from having to travel many miles - thanks to real-time status information always being available inside the isense system. The push/pull sensor and de
