ONLINE TOOL ENABLES QUICK CONFIGURATION OF E-CHAINS

The way to a ready-to-connect e-chain is now even quicker and easier with the new online igus e-chain expert. With the aid of this free and accessible online tool, users can design their e-chain systems using a smart phone, tablet or 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 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 configurator, the user can choose from over 1300 highly flexible chainflex cables and over 4200 harnessed readycable drive cables, all tested tested by igus in its 3800m2 laboratory and coming 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.

The online expert uses an interior separation configurator, which 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 that safely meets their requirements. Another advantage is that the intelligent tool constantly checks the configuration for plausibility, so the user can be sure the elements are coordinated.

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 e- chain systems online anywhere and at any time, and process the CAD data. With one click the user can download the configuration. The ready-to-connect e-chain system can then be ordered directly from Treotham. Alternatively, the user can also request an individual offer for their configuration.
