Reducing installation time and processing costs
Energy chain specialist igus UK has produced a new cost-effective modular rack for the quick transportation and installation of pre-installed energy chain cable carrier systems. The new rack is the perfect solution for safely mounting and transporting an entire pre-configured energy chain system directly and precisely to the customer’s machine interface. Previously installation processes would take a considerable amount of time, but with the new system the time and effort is significantly reduced.
The rack consists of a telescopic frame and braces that are made from galvanised steel and it can be extended and adapted easily to suit any installation. Each rack can be constructed within a couple of hours and because of the modular design it is easy to add or remove components at any time to suit the machine. Furthermore, unlike conventional welded racks, the custom made parts are reusable which eliminates the need for disposal and reproduction.
With this system the benefits are three-fold. Manufacturers can reduce their processing costs, which in this case are mainly personnel, reduce installation times and reduce the amount of waste produced by redundant material, therefore remaining competitive and responsive in their market.
