    Wear-resistant & lubrication-free: new igus bar stock for food, continuous operation and high media resistance

    Treotham has expanded its wide range of igus iglidur round bars with four materials; among them two for the food sector: the heat-resistant material iglidur AC500 and the resilient material A250. The extremely hard-wearing material iglidur H3 and the particularly wear-resistant endurance material iglidur E complete the product range. This makes it possible to mill and turn lubrication-free and maintenance-free prototypes and special components for a wide variety of applications.

    Ball screw or lead screw? Five questions to help you identify the right equipment for your application

    When determining if an application calls for a lead or ball screw, your decision should be guided through evaluating the inherent advantages and disadvantages of each. This evaluation process can have a significant impact on the performance and economic benefits of linear motion projects. The first step comes from understanding how they differ. Both ball and lead screws use threaded rods to convert from rotary to linear motion. Ball screws, as the name would imply, use recirculating ball bearings to minimize friction. Lead screws, by contrast, rely on a low coefficient of friction from sliding surfaces.

    Practical upgrade for hot areas: System builders can keep a cool head

    The Wenglor INTT inductive sensors for extreme temperature ranges from Treotham detect metallic objects contactlessly at ambient temperatures of up to 250 °C. The new INTT series has two new features that make it even more flexible and robust. For dynamic applications in hot areas, system builders can now choose from flexible cables and simple push/pull connectors. The plug-in sensor heads are therefore easy to replace. The analysis module is also located directly in the M12 sensor plug. This innovative feature offers great added value for users who design or operate drying ovens for paint or surface coatings, for example.

    Introducing the flexfunction CTS safety switch and the CKS2 key system from Treotham

    Treotham’s new CTS guard locking device from Euchner features a high locking force, compact design and maximum flexibility, making it the perfect choice for applications requiring a high locking force in a confined space. Measuring only 135 x 31 x 31 millimeters in size, it delivers a maximum locking force of 3,900 N for universal use. The CTS can be mounted in three orientations, permitting flexible use for hinged and sliding doors.

    New lightweight layer gripper ZLW: slim for the cobot

    With Schmalz’s new weight-reduced layer gripper from Treotham, cobots can also palletize lighter workpiece layers. It is not only slim, but also efficient: Schmalz optimally matches the suction grid, gripper dimensions and all other components to the handling task, thus minimizing the power required for vacuum generation.

    Evolution of the trapezoidal thread: new igus standard from Treotham achieves 82 percent efficiency

    Even tried and tested structures have potential for improvement. One example is the classic trapezoidal thread, which igus has refined. Thanks to a special geometric interaction between the lead screw nut, which requires no lubrication or maintenance, and the metal lead screw, dryspin technology promises a long service life, improved efficiencies, low wear and less movement noise.

    Freedom for articulated arm robots: igus’ 7th axis from Treotham extends the working space by up to 400 percent

    Articulated arm robots can travel over six metres, quadrupling their working space: the 7th axis is now compatible with all lightweight articulated arm robots worldwide thanks to a simple Plug & Play kit. So far, models from Universal Robots, Epson and the igus robolink series from Treotham have benefited from this increased mobility. Now Omron, Franka Emika, Doosan, Yuanda Robotics and many other lightweight robotics suppliers are joining the list.
