In robotic applications, rotating, pivoting and 3D movements are part of everyday life. Energy chains are essential to safely guide and protect robot cables. The triflex® R 3D robot energy chains have been specifically developed for multi-axis robots. Due to its high tensile force absorption and high flexibility, the Triflex® enables a rotation of about ±10° per chain link with complicated motions in the vertical axes. Compared to a cable protection hose, triflex R offers a defined bend radius, which greatly increases the service life of cables and hoses.
The triflex® R's Modular design, can be easily lengthened and shortened, comes with a fibre rod option and offers easy filling and assembly.

There is always competition between the corrugated hose and our triflex® R energy chain when it comes to protecting cables.
In eight short videos, we compared the two products against each other in various disciplines or rounds.
However, apart from the colour and external shape, they have little in common.
With our e-chains® robot equipment configurator, you can configure the appropriate igus® equipment for your robot model in just a few steps. If necessary, you can use the respective Help buttons of the fields to obtain more detailed information on the individual components. Finally, you can place your completed configuration directly in the shopping cart, place an order with us or use one of the additional features (e.g. CAD and PDF download).
