There is competition between the corrugated hose and the triflex® R e-chain® as means of protecting cables. In eight short videos, we pitted the two products against one other in various disciplines or rounds. However, apart from the color and external shape, they have little in common.
Stretches greatly under tensile load. The cables in the corrugated hose cannot elongate in the same ratio and are therefore damaged.
Stretches only minimally under tensile load. No additional load for the cables
It offers no minimum bend radius
Offers a bend radius of between 50 to 182mm depending on the triflex size.
Damage to the corrugated hose due to stresses and torsional movement can cause damage to the cables
The stop-dogs prevent the e-chain from bending too tightly.
None or limited torsion occurs
triflex® R: 7-12.5° torsion angle per chain link
Up to 900° torsion angle for one metre (example: TRC/TRE.40)
If the plug is not too large, the cable can be pushed through from the ends.
triflex® R: With TRE, TRL, TRLF and TRCF, cables with plugs can be pressed in externally.
Can be shortened only with tools (knives). This can pose health and safety risks and can damage cables.
Length is adjustable with and without tools being required. This is dependant on which triflex range.
Due to the moduar design, the triflex can be lengthened and shortened by fitting/ removing chain links to suit. This cannot be done with a corrugated hose.
Can be installed via the hose ends only.
triflex® R: Can be installed via the e-chain ends or due to the design of the TRE, TRL and TRCF, the installing of cables/services can be implemented externally.
Damaged areas cannot be replaced or repaired.
triflex® R: In the unlikely event that a chain link is damaged, the damaged chain link can be replaced, even when the chain is filled with cables or services.
The latest products and product enhancements from the field of robotics. Example: space-saving installation with a retraction length of up to 36% with the telescopic triflex® R TRX and more.
TRE.40.058.0.B in conjunction with the UR metal clamps ensure a trouble-free energy supply on the cobot.
Two robots take over the drilling and riveting of aircraft fuselages before it goes to the final assembly
Multidimensionally movable energy supply systems ensure maximum flexibility and longest service life for all complex movements - while at the same time being easy to install.
The task was to make the handling reliable and also to bring it visually up to date.
A specialist for packaging systems relies on the triflex cable routing with retraction system. It protects the cables of the long-arm robot during palletizing.
We can assist you with a turnkey, fully assembled solutions or answer any questions you may have with a custom project.
