    Presentation Title: Smart plastics for industry 4.0

    The isense family of igus® products consists of various intellgent sensors and monitoring modules. They measure wear during the operation and alarm the user early enough to plan a repair or an exchange. The igus® Communication Module (icom) makes the seamless integration into your IT infrastructure possible. This allows scenarios like the continuous monitoring or automatic triggering of in-house maintenance jobs. An optional connection with the igus® data center widens the options: individual lifetime calculation and faster operational processes like automatic ordering of external maintenance crews or ordering of spare parts. Thanks to smart plastics your equipment runs continuously and your maintenance costs go down. Improved safety is an additional benefit.
