Multi-axis energy chain for robots
triflex® R

In 3D applications, rotating and pivoting movements are part of everyday life. Energy chains are required here, which safely guide and protect robot cables. The triflex R (TRE, TRC and TRL) energy chain has been specifically developed for demanding multi-axis robots. Due to its high tensile force absorption and high flexibility, the energy chain enables a rotation of about ±10° per chain link with complicated motions in the vertical axes. Compared to a cable protection hose, triflex R offers a defined bend radius, which greatly increases the service life of cables and hoses.
