Igus has introduced six product lines to its Triflex R system of third-generation six-axis robot energy chains.

The multi-axial energy-supply system, developed for sophisticated six-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments, now comprises over 200 components.

The ‘quick change’ kit for the Triflex R system allows pre-harnessed robot energy chains to be changed by hand.

A rapid locking protector protects the energy chain at contact points, where strong stressing occurs through impacts and scouring of the E-Chain against the robot.

Simple to assemble, it can be positioned freely over two consecutive chain links.

As the protector can be easily snapped open with a screw driver, replacement can be carried out within 11sec.

Complementing the Triflex R family, the Triflex R 125 is the largest 3D moving robot energy chain from Igus.

With a 135mm external diameter, it has sufficient space for very large services, such as hydraulic hoses and air pipes.

A ball-head connection allows mounting and dismantling even with the hoses and cables inside.

The universal Triflex RS module, which transports the energy chain close to the robot arm, has new accessories and is available in four new sizes.

Igus has robot-specific mounting-adapter plates available from stock for 43 types of robot.

Igus has introduced a mount for the sixth axis.

The ‘lollipop’ or ‘tennis racquet’, with 30mm mounting tube diameter, can be easily mounted.

Compatible with the energy-chain fixing brackets, strain-relief CFX clamps or strain-relief teeth, the mount is suitable for use on any kind of robot.

Igus offers a range of special cables for use in torsion applications, designed for use in the Triflex R energy-chain system.

These comprise Chainflex bus, motor and control cables, as well as fibre-optic cables.

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.
