Robot dress packs: flexible cable carriers & accessories for industrial robots

triflex® R is a multi-axis cable carrier designed for use in a wide variety of robotic applications, including material handling and welding. It features a built-in torsion stop to reduce the amount of mechanical stress imposed on your cables; a defined bend radius to ensure the bend radius of your cables won’t be violated; and a split cavity that acts as a separator to reduce excessive cable wear. Unlike corrugated tubing, triflex® R comes in nine sizes and is designed with ball and socket links that enable individual pieces of the system to be replaced if one of them is damaged. You can add or remove links if your system is too short, too long or if your robot needs to be repurposed. 

We also sell every part needed for your collaborative robot's (cobot) cable management system available in one convenient kit. We also sell individual standard mounting brackets, UR brackets and clips, fiber rod modules, abrasion protectors, protective jackets and heat shieds and robot cables.  Browse all accessories.


  • Defined bend radius, built-in torsion stop
