Why triflex® R and no protective hoses …

The triflex® R energy supply system was developed for sophisticated robotic applications and compared to the protective hose, offers the following technical advantages.

 Why triflex® R and no protective hoses ... 1. Defined minimum bending radius
Each triflex® R chain link has a stable circumferential bending radii stop. This ensures that the minimum bending radius of cables/hoses doesn’t fall short and the service life of the application is significantly increased.
Why triflex® R and no protective hoses ....2 2. Defined torsion stop
Every triflex® R chain link has a defined torsion stop. This prevents the cables and hoses from being overloaded during operation. Thus, the lifetime of the application is significantly increased.
Why triflex® R and no protective hoses ....3 3. Modular design
All triflex® R type series and sizes follow a modular system. Thus each triflex® R energy supply system can be extended and shortened. Any desired length can also be retrofitted – individual triflex® R chain links can be used or removed at any position.
Why triflex® R and no protective hoses ....4 4. Ideal cable routing
By the 2- or 3-chamber system, a spatial separation of the cables and hoses can be implemented. Different cables and media can be securely routed, separated from each other.
Why triflex® R and no protective hoses ....5 5. High tensile strength through trailer system
Each TR chain link has a “ball/socket connection”. The push/pull forces are transmitted through this connection. The “ball/socket connection” is based on the “trailer” principle (similar to a trailer hitch), which absorbs very high forces.
