triflex® RSE linear

triflex RSE linear

Linear cable management retraction system for welding, riveting and nailing robots

  • Available for triflex® sizes from 60-125 – all to be mounted on one system
  • Shorter cable lengths, because there is no deflection
  • More cost-effective
  • Space-saving design
  • Less deflection points, greater process reliability for laser light cables and supply hoses

triflex® RSE Wheel

triflex RSE Wheel

Cost-effective retraction system for small robots to prevent

  • Responds extremely quickly, even with highly dynamic robot programs
  • Low additional load on the robot does not affect its handling capacity
  • Universally adjustable assembly consoles
  • Maintenance and self-lubricating igus® drylin® W linear unit
  • For maximum degrees of freedom
  • Plenty of clearance for the programmer
  • For cable diameters up to 15 mm

triflex® RSP

triflex RSP

Pneumatic, intelligent retraction system – avoid loops on the robot’s wrist

  • Even larger triflex® R e-chains® can be guided safely up to ø 125 mm
  • Adjustable, variable pull-back force made possible by a pressure control valve
  • Virtually constant power flow over the complete travel, even with heavy fillings.
  • Limit position can be monitored, therefore avoiding significant damage during failures.
  • Larger pull-back forces for RS system
  • Mounting options for numerous robot types and manufacturers with adapter consoles
  • Typical applications: Axis 3-6 on industrial robots
  • Hardly any energy consumption due to integrated air reservoir

triflex® RS

triflex RS

Compact, universal modular system for all motions on industrial robots

  • Installation advantages: triflex® R can be extended or shortened, chain link by chain link
  • Easy to fill from the outside (TRE)
  • Fixed bending radius stop to prevent "cable stress"
  • High torsionability, up to 360° (TRC.70)
  • Free from getting stuck in the interfering edges (TRC)
  • High tensile strength thanks to the ball-socket connection (trailer principle)
  • Maintenance-free, without lubrication
  • No elaborate guide required
