Flexible energy chains for multi-axis robots

The multi-axis energy supply system Triflex® R has been specially developed for the sophisticated 6-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments. As compared to a protective cable hose, the triflex® R system provides various benefits for moving applications, such as multi-axis industrial robots, in machine tools or for material handling applications.

  • Defined minimum bending radius for a cable- and hose-friendly guidance in moving applications.
  • High torsion stability and defined torsion stop
  • Modular design, can be shortened or extended freely
  • With fiber rod option
  • Easy installation
  • Simple filling
  • Available ex stock
  • Also available as a complete solution, incl. energy chain compatible cables
