Line guide device

. . In a cable routing device having a cable carrier and a guiding device for the cable carrier, wherein the cable carrier has a first strand connected to a first connector and a second strand connected to a second connector, which are connected to one another via a rerouting area, and the guiding device having a contact area for the stationary contact of at least one part of one of the strand is provided for a secure contact of the corresponding part of the strand with the contact area and for preventing sliding friction, the cable carrier having at least one magnet, and the contact area having a ferromagnetic or ferrimagnetic material, wherein the magnet interacts with the contact area in a predetermined positioning area of the cable carrier relative to the guiding device such that the strand having the magnet adheres to the contact area with a predetermined magnetic attractive force.. . ... Igus Gmbh

Guide device

The invention relates to a guide device, in particular for a cable chain, comprising laterally opposite guiding walls for guiding the top part and/or the bottom part of the cable carrier, which are formed from wall elements interconnected from the area of the front-sided end. Said wall elements are made from a single piece of plastic, and they comprise, in the area of the front-sided ends, first securing means made of one piece which enable said elements to be fixed in a positive and/or non-positive fit to a directly adjacent wall element such that a separation therefrom and pivoting counter to is prevented in any direction.. ... Igus Gmbh

Energy guiding chain

The invention relates to an energy guiding chain for guiding cables, hoses and the like between two connecting points that move relative to each other, comprising a plurality of tubular chain links (1), which are connected to each other in articulated fashion and made of plastic, and each of which displays a bottom wall (2), adjoining, opposite side walls (3, 4), and a cover wall (5), where the cover wall (5) is or can be detachably connected to the side walls (3, 4), the side walls (3, 4) each display a pivot pin (6) and a joint opening (7) for the articulated connection of adjacent chain links (1), the pivoting angle is limited by stops (8) in both pivoting directions, and the cover walls (5), side walls (3, 4) and bottom walls (2) overlap over the entire pivoting angle. On an energy guiding chain of this kind, the protection of the interior is to be even further improved, and handling during opening and closing of the energy guiding chain facilitated. ... Igus Gmbh

Robot arm and assembly set

. . The invention relates to a robot arm (1) having a modular structure and directly driven arm joints (2). To simplify and facilitate assembly of the robot arm (1), it is proposed that the arm joints (2) each display a drive module (3) having a directly driven worm drive (31) for generating a torque effective in relation to an axis of rotation (a, a1, a2, a3, a4, a5) of the drive module (3), and a connecting module (4), following on axially from the drive module (3) in relation to the axis of rotation (a), for transmitting the torque to an arm joint (2) located downstream in relation to a drive sequence, in the direction of a head-side end joint (21) of the robot arm (1). ...

Lead screw drive with asymmetrical internal and external thread and corresponding spindle nut

The invention relates to a lead screw drive (10) and a spindle nut (12) for converting a rotational movement into a longitudinal movement or vice versa, wherein the internal thread (20) of the spindle nut and the external thread (30) of the spindle are of asymmetrical configuration with respect to one another. At least the internal thread (20) of the spindle nut or the entire spindle nut (12) is manufactured from plastic. ... Igus Gmbh

Guide system for supply lines and robot having a guide system

The invention relates to a guide system for supply lines for a handling device, particularly for a robot, having a guide base, a deflecting element guided along a linear travel path by the guide base, and a chain-like, hose-like or belt-like strand, where the deflecting element can travel along the travel path, from a retracted position into an extended position, by means of a tensile force acting on the strand and against a restoring force, the restoring force being generated by a restoring device located on or in the guide base. The restoring device displays at least one elastic cord or elastic belt that is guided around a deflecting device located on or in the guide base, adjacent to the retracted position of the deflecting element, and, adjoining it, a first section that is connected to the deflecting element, and a second section that is connected to the guide base. ...
