Multi-axis e-chain® for robots - triflex® R

In 3D applications, rotating and pivoting movements are part of everyday life. Energy chains are required here, which safely guide and protect robot cables. The triflex R (TRE, TRC and TRL) energy chain has been specifically developed for demanding multi-axis robots. Due to its high tensile force absorption and high flexibility, the energy chain 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.

10 Tips for a durable energy supply system on a 6 axis robot

This guide shows you step by step how to select, install and commission an energy supply system on the industrial robot for axes 3-6. 
The first points are dedicated to the correct positioning of the cable and hose package and the selection of the correct e-chain. After that its followed by choosing the right retraction system. 
Helpful installation tips and a final checklist conclude the 10-point package and provide step-by-step instructions for robotic amateurs and even professionals.

TRX | revolutionises robot energy supply

Telescopic and twistable combined in one e-chain

  • The TRX adds to the functions of the triflex R series and now makes it telescopic as well
  • Thanks to their patented design, the TRX chain links allow length compensation of up to 40% in relation to each other without being connected to each other and without losing  torsional strength .
  • The rubber band inside the TRX always takes the chain links back to their starting point, and the retraction force can be adjusted via the rubber band 
  • Weight reduction of up to 83% compared to a solution with a retraction system (RSP)
  • Currently, the design study TRX is 100% compatible with TRE.70.110.0B, further chain sizes are to follow
