igus® products being used successfully in the textile industry

e-chains for safe cable guidance in flat knitting machine

In the textile industry, quality, precision and cleanness are essential. Therefore, the high reliability and absolute freedom from lubricants speak for the use of energy supplies in flat knitting machines. The igus e-chain ensures safe cable guidance in the machine and long cable service life.

Hem recognition sensor

By combining an igus plain bearing with a thin-walled metallic bushing, a light sensor could be built, which additionally leads to a cost reduction of 40%.  

e-chain® enables fast operation of a wall cleaner

Until an e-chain was used in this wall cleaner, the electricity cable regularly got twisted, leading to short circuits and downtime of the plant. So as to avoid these incidents, the operator used e-chains by igus and the problem was solved.
