For over 20 years, igus® (East Providence, RI) has been rigorously testing the durability of its Chainflex continuous-flex cables in its 19,000 square foot laboratory. The company says it performs around two-billion test cycles at more than 50 test machines every year. Long life for moving parts is a fundamental requirement for both OEMs and MROs when integrating machinery. Endurance tests are supervised at over 50 different test stations and results are recorded by igus’ dedicated laboratory team. Cables are subjected to different types of mechanical stresses and monitored electrically. Afterwards, test results are analyzed and used to improve igus products.
