Treotham offers a range of Industry 4.0 enabled igus cables, energy chains and linear bearings that can predict when they need to be repaired or replaced during operation. Their added intelligence and networking allow igus plastics to detect the degree of wear during ongoing operation and emit an alarm as soon as repair or replacement is required.

igus cables, energy chains and linear bearings enable customers to increase reliability and plant availability, minimise downtime, and reduce costs through condition monitoring and predictive maintenance. Through extensive testing, igus is able to accurately predict the service life of its motion plastics.

Being self-lubricating and maintenance-free as well as lighter, hard-wearing and more energy efficient than traditional materials, igus’ smart plastics offer a long service life and can be used in environments requiring preventative maintenance such as harbour installations, cranes, automotive factories and more.

The isense products from igus include diverse sensors and monitoring modules, while networking with the igus Communication Module (icom) enables direct integration with the customer’s IT infrastructure or the igus data cloud.

Data can also be optionally shared with the igus data centre, opening up possibilities for customer service life calculation and optimisation of business processes.
