Less maintenance work and costs in automotive production

In automotive production, the line never stops. Collaborating robot arms for assembly and welding work are in continuous use, as are all the components that supply them with energy and data and realise movements. Our products are designed for movement and continuous use. For example, the triflex R energy supply system protects cables that must perform 3D and torsional movements on robots and other rotating machines. For the best combination in terms of service life, the energy supply systems use our chainflex cables, for which we offer a 4-year guarantee. And if you want to know whether the chain will go on functioning properly, you can use our smart plastics sensors. Whether new project or retrofit - our solutions for automotive production are available as a universal modular kit and can be tailored to each individual application.
