Treotham presents a new online tool that enables quick
configuration of harnessed igus energy chain systems.
Quick and easy configuration of complete energy supply
systems is now ensured by the igus e-chain expert. With the newly developed
online tool, users can design their own guaranteed ready-to-connect energy
chain system in just a few steps. Here, the interior separation is made
automatically and the user receives reliable information on the durability of
the energy chain and cables used. This allows the customer to easily choose the
most cost-effective system that fits their application and order it directly
The quick way to a ready-to-connect energy chain is
made even easier with the igus e-chain expert. With the aid of the new
free-of-charge and freely accessible online tool, users can design their energy
chain system using a smart phone, tablet or a desktop computer. Whether an unsupported,
gliding or hanging application, the configurator determines the energy chain
that is optimally suited. To do this, the user simply has to open the e-chain expert, select the unharnessed or harnessed cables, enter
the application and environmental parameters, decide on the appropriate energy
chain from a pre-selection and configure it.
In the energy chain configurator, the user can choose
from over 1,300 highly flexible chainflex cables tested by igus as well as over
4,200 harnessed readycable drive cables. These are tested and, like all igus
cables, come with a 36-month guarantee. On the basis of the specified cables
and the application data such as installation space, movement and environment
of the energy chain, the customer can choose from a selection of 150,000
e-chain parts for the most cost-effective solution. All igus products are
tested in their own 3,800-square-metre laboratory, and can be ordered from
interior separation and service life calculation
An interior separation configurator is used in the
online expert. It uses artificial intelligence or neural networks to determine
the appropriate interior separation for the defined cable pool within seconds.
Thanks to an integrated service life calculation, both for the energy chain and
the individual cables, the customer can quickly and easily choose the most
cost-effective system, which safely meets their requirements. Another
advantage: the intelligent tool constantly checks the configuration for
plausibility, so the user can be sure the elements are coordinated.
together as a team and order directly
The user has the opportunity to share the current
processing state in the online tool with other people at any time via e-mail or
hyperlink. Several team members from different departments can jointly design
energy chain systems online at anytime and anywhere, and process the CAD data.
With one click you can download the configuration. The ready-to-connect energy
chain system can then be ordered directly from Treotham. Alternatively, the
customer can also request an individual offer for their configuration.
