igus’ 3D-printed readychain p-rack offers customization to the millimeter.

Igus has launched its readychain p-rack (printed rack), a pre-assembled cable carrier solutions with a 3D-printed e-chain that can be customized to the millimeter. According to igus, the readychain p-rack can be manufactured faster and lighter than its metal predecessor. The company says it is up to 80% lighter and can be assembled and disassembled without additional hand tools. In addition, custom carriers can be printed in just 36 hours. All p-rack attachments can also be printed from corn starch, which igus says is rustproof but is also compostable or entirely regranulated and reused.
