A range of products including cable carrier systems, flexible and guaranteed cables, and self-lubricating bearing solutions will be on display at IMTS, September 12-17 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

At the biennial IMTS show, motion plastics specialist igus will be presenting a range of products for use in the manufacturing and repair of machine tools. An industrial robot will be in action in the booth, operating with an igus Triflex robotic retraction system guiding and protecting cables and hoses along the 6-axes of motion. A variety of other working displays will also be on display in the igus booth, E-4521, located in the East Building of McCormick Place.

Also at the show, igus will present a selection of the more than 1,000 Chainflex cables, all fully guaranteed for up to 36 months of continuous-flex performance. A number of self-lubricating iglide plastic plain bearings and DryLin linear bearings and slides will also be available. Product experts will be on hand throughout the show to answer questions one-on-one, and a number of free samples and giveaways will be on hand throughout the show.
