energy chain® cable carriers for robot cable management

Guide energy along all axes, specifically for robot applications. For axis 1, twisterchain offers ideal cable protection for rotary and spiral movements. Axes 2–6 are the field of application for the triflex® R system. Impact-resistant, torque-resistant with external stop-dog and twistable by +/- 10° per chain link – these are the properties that make triflex® R the perfect and best possible robot e-chain®.
