According to igus, it is simple to set up the triflex RSP (retraction system pneumatic) on a six-axis robot. Part of the triflex series, the RSP system is suitable for multi-axial robotic applications.

The RSP system offers consistent pullback forces on the triflex R robot energy chain; it is adjustable and can be attached to various multi-axis robotic arms quickly and easily. Lightweight and space saving, triflex RSP is also available with an optional monitoring system for robots that have programme sequences that are changed frequently or alternately or are not 100 per cent predictable. 

While the triflex RSP is suitable for applications including heavy fill weights, such as welding robots, its modular design enables complex movements and is therefore suitable for use across a wide range of industries and applications including flip-over, handling equipment, plastics and vehicle manufacturing.

Igus

Igus is the largest producer of reinforced plastic energy chains and injection-moulded polymer bearings. The range of polymer bearings includes Iglidur plain, Igubal spherical and Drylin linear bearings. They offer an excellent price-to-life relationship and are developed under the toughest conditions. They are oil, maintenance and lubrication free, low wear, resistant to dirt and dust, corrosion free and simple to fit. Igus also has the data to precisely predict the lifetime of these bearings within a specific application.

Energy chains are the umbilical cord of modern machines. They minimise downtime and protect, support and extend the service life of cables and hoses. The broad range incorporates more than 30,000 innovative, low-cost products. From the smallest ‘micro’ chain to the largest chain in the world, the E4.350, Igus energy chains are capable of long and short travel distances at high speeds in all axes.

Igus also has its own cable series, Chainflex, specially designed with energy chains in mind. They are highly flexible cables, offering a long service life and very small bending radii. A wide range is available, from small signal cables to large power cables, high-speed data cables and glass fibre-optic cables.

The company’s energy chains and Chainlflex cables can be delivered as a fully harnessed and pre-assembled Readychain system, cutting purchasing, warehousing and installation costs.
