Less maintenance work and costs in automotive production

In the automotive industry, cables, e.g. on welding robots, are moved constantly and have to be protected from environmental influences. triflex R energy supplies protect cables during 3D and torsion movements of the robot. They are quick and easy to fill and therefore save valuable time. If you fit them with chainflex cables that have been specifically developed for applications with very high loads, you create an unbeatable team with long service life. Whether new project or retrofit - our solutions for automotive production are available as a universal modular kit and can be tailored to each application.

Tested in the test laboratory for use in the real world

In the industry's largest test lab, e-chains and chainflex cables are tested for continuous load, very small installation spaces, media resistance and quiet operation in realistic conditions.

Successfully used in automotive production

No loops thanks to retraction system These robots by the company Bielomatik are equipped with triflex R RSP retraction systems and triflex R energy chains. The retraction systems help avoid the creation of loops and the e-chains ensure long-lasting cable protection despite the continuous and rapid torsion movements. The robots are used for the final processing of plastic moulded parts and work in flexible production cells.

Avoid unplanned downtimes due to intelligent energy chain monitoring In an Austrian motor plant, isense EC modules are used for monitoring abrasion and breaks. They continuously record the condition of the components and signal as soon as a repair or replacement is required. That way it is possible to avoid surprising plant downtimes resulting in expensive production losses. » Go to detailed application report
