triflex® for 2D and 3D movements - closed

The triflex® series has been developed to safely guide cables during a 3D movement. In this case, the flexibility of a hose is combined with the stability of an e-chain® with a fixed, defined radius. This unique modular range enables very complex movements. As example: Combination of chain links moving in single, double and triple axes in an e-chain®.

Closed and snap-open sections can be combined

 

Separation - Lift side part, slightly turn and then separate

 

Opening in only Series 352/353 - Place screwdriver in the opening and lift lid

 
Installation instructions

Joining, separating and filling of the triflex®.
