Short or long strain relief teeth for triflex R?

Marius Glaue | 14. April 2020

The use of strain relief components for energy supply systems is very often forgotten or simply underestimated and, when they are considered at all, they are often the wrong ones for the task at hand. This is extremely annoying and costs an unnecessary amount of time. But doing without strain relief is no solution either […]

The energy chain in the lane – Part 5

Christian Strauch | 20. March 2020

Lightning-fast autoglide 5 installation Busbar systems and modern energy chain systems have always been relatively quick and easy to install. The manufacturers of these products ensure that installation is uncomplicated and that anyone can learn to do it in a very short period. Busbar systems are usually fixed to brackets two to six metres apart, […]


The energy chain in the lane – Part 4

autoglide 5 with a fibre optic cable instead of a bus cable! As far as I know, fibre optic technology has not yet achieved broad acceptance in material handling and intralogistics, certainly not for dynamic applications such as energy chains. Conventional bus technology presents no problems for cables of 50 metres or less. But what […]
