Robot cables for triflex® R cable carriers

Long service life in robotic applications

As industrial robotic applications become more and more demanding, we're finding an increased need for flexible cables that can handle extremely complex movements and torsional stress while still delivering a long service life.

Our CF-ROBOT power cable has a torsion-resistant, tin-plated copper shield sheath, which is in contrast to conventional counter wound copper shields. The outer jacket material is a high-grade TPE mixture with excellent wear properties. CF-ROBOT cables are an ideal partner for triflex® R multi-axis cable carriers.

Torsion tests in the igus® laboratory with CF-ROBOT (type 037) in a triflex® R test rig against a standard Series 310 chainflex® continuous-flex cable with a 270° rotation angle revealed no damage to the CF-ROBOT cable, even after 2.5 million cycles. Shield damage was detected in the CF310-250-01 after 250,000 cycles.

Our line of robot cables has recently been expanded to offer twistable hybrid, bus, motor, and fiber-optic cables, all of which have been extensively tested in the igus® laboratories to ensure optimum performance in your application.
