Flexible cable guidance for assembly robots in the automotive industry

Multidimensional triflex energy chains allow complex movements of the assembly robots

Profile

  • What was needed: triflex energy supply systems
  • Requirements: reliable energy supply system that also flexibly follows complex movements in all axes; movements mean strong twisting, yet the energy supply system must not tear or buckle; in addition, simple assembly and the price-performance ratio were important to the customer.
  • Industry: automotive industry
  • Success for the customer: for all eleven robots, the triflex R offers high flexibility and cable protection for complex movements, this also increases the service life; it is also impact-resistant, dirt-repellent, tough, abrasion-resistant and swarf-resistant; the modular design enables cost-saving assembly and disassembly

Problem

Solution

After a product presentation at our company, a complex movement was simulated in a test setup in the igus test laboratory. Their flexibility appealed to us so much that we replaced our earlier system with them. Now, all eleven robots are equipped with the triflex R energy supply systems. And they prove themselves in everyday life. All the tests and experiments conducted so far satisfy us.
