triflex® R TRC series in ESD material

  • ESD material tested for over 10 million cycles for the toughest requirements
  • Enclosed energy chains made out of conductive material with mounting brackets (strain relief version) in ESD version available from stock
  • Standardised product using igumid ESD
  • Proven over years of use in explosion-proof areas
Product description
Energy chains made of conductive ESD material are used to avoid static charge in manufacturing processes for electronic components or assemblies. Measurements of the electrical surface leakage resistance for igus energy chains with the special material igumid GC, were made back in 1992 by igus GmbH together with the PTB (Physikalisch-Technische-Bundesanstalt) in Braunschweig, supplemented by additional certifications in 1998 and 1999 according to DIN 53482, and the guidelines for static electricity ZH1/200 of the Federation of Trade Associations.

Technical design qualities of the igus® triflex® R TRC series of e-chains®:
  • approx. ±10° torsion per chain link
  • High tensile strength due to ball-and-socket joint
  • Fiber rod option for partial directional control and reinforcement
  • No support elements such as steel cables, springs etc. are necessary
  • Diverse range of accessories
  • Optional retraction systems reliably guide the 3D e-chains® along the robot arm and dependably prevent loop formation
  • TRC - Safe, enclosed, chip-repellent
  • Smooth and robust exterior against interfering edges
  • High torsion stability
  • Can be arbitrarily shortened or extended
