Long travels of 1,000 metres and more
Since 1995, igus® has sold more than 30,000 gliding long travels that are successfully in operation around the world. The service life can be as long as 10 years or more. The length of travel can be 1000m and more. These move at speeds of up to 10m/s or more and can carry fill weights of 50kg or more. The igus® Project Engineering Team will assist you with the sizing, design, project management, installation and commissioning on site. In addition, the use of igus® isense sensors and monitoring modules (eg Push/Pull Detection System) can be used to measure the abrasion of energy chains, push/pull forces and accelerations as well as perform real-time monitoring. The energy chains, cables and the hoses can be guided smoothly and with low friction in long travels through guide troughs and enclosures. Long indoor and outdoor travels can be found in a wide range of industries, extending from machine tools, sewage plants and waste incinerators through to cranes, power stations and mines.
