triflex® R 3D e-chain® specially made for robotic applications

triflex® R (R for "round") is the third generation of multi-axis igus® e-chains®. The multi-axis energy supply system triflex® R was specially developed for sophisticated 6-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments. Some of the important design features are: Fiber rod option for the partial reinforcement of the triflex® R, approximately +/- 10° Torsion per chain link, high tensile strength through ball and socket joint. More than 100 components are available in the triflex® R product range, covering all requirements from large welding robots down to small palletising robots. triflex® R has received the iF Design award.

TRC = closed - closed version for protection of the cables against dirt and chips
Simplest installation and dismantling through the ball-and-socket system
Very simple filling - Just push in cable - easy system
