Energy chains for robots

The energy supply system triflex® R has been developed specially for sophisticated multi-axis robots. Due to its high tensile force absorption, the energy chain runs smoothly in all axes, and the high flexibility enables a rotation of about ±10° per chain link with complicated motions in the vertical axes.
twisterchain is used for circular and spiral movements. Tough, quiet, for high loads and rotations of to 540°.
Typical industries and applications: robots, handling machines, packaging machines...
