triflex® R (R for "round") is the third generation of multi-axis igus® e-chains®. The multi-axis triflex® R energy supply system was specially developed for sophisticated 6-axis robotic applications in harsh industrial environments. Some of the important design features are: fibre-rod option for the partial reinforcement of the triflex® R, approximately +/- 10° torsion per chain link, high tensile strength through ball and socket joint. More than 100 components are available in the triflex® R product range, covering all requirements from large welding robots down to small palletising robots. triflex® R has received the iF Design award.
