Cable carriers minimise downtime on Gudel robots

To minimise downtime across its range of automated systems - from multi-axis robots and press-transfer systems, to factory-automation equipment and gantry robots - GÜDEL uses reinforced plastic cable carriers supplied by igus. These cable carriers guide and protect moving cables and hoses to maximise uptime of the equipment for the end-user.

GÜDEL uses System E4/100 enclosed Energy Tubes from igus, which feature hinged, snap-open lids for easy access to cables and hoses. The robust plastic chains are resistant to harsh chemicals, hot flying debris, dirt and dust. They withstand high loads, fast accelerations and speeds, and long travels. The machines use up to 70m of Energy Tube and operate at speeds up to 7m/sec.

GÜDEL also uses igus’ modular System E4/4 Energy Chain cable carriers, which have easily-removable crossbars so that cables and hoses can be added or replaced quickly. System E4 cable carriers are suited to a wide range of demanding applications. Commenting on its choice of energy chain, ," Olivia DuRussel, mechanical design engineer for GÜDEL, siad: "Energy Chain from igus is the only cable management system we use. It is featured in our catalogue as the exclusive cable carrier used in all our designs."
