New Harnessed Robotic Dress Packs Now Available For Quick Replacement and Installation

By: | March 5th, 2017

igus now offers standard “readychain” ready-to-use robotic dress packs for simple installation as well as multi-axis cable guidance and protection.

In automated plants and other manufacturing facilities, downtime creates a critical situation. Once production stops, every minute counts, making new standard, fully-assembled dress packs for industrial robots an ideal solution to get systems back up and running.

The standard assembled dress packs consist of triflex multi-axis cable carriers, guaranteed chainflex continuous-flex cables, hoses, and other components that can be adapted to suit the needs of each customer’s individual needs. “The growing need for retrofit solutions in existing plants gave us the idea to develop and offer standardized dress packs for robots,” explains Dale Rheaume, product manager for readychain harnessed systems at igus.
