triflex® R (R do "okrągłych") jest trzecim pokoleniem 3-osiowych łańcuchów energii firmy igus®. Wieloosiowy system zasilania energią triflex® R został specjalnie rozwinięty do zaawansowanych 6-osiowych robotów pracujących w ciężkich warunkach przemysłowych. Niektóre z ważnych cech projektowych obejmują: opcja drążka z włókna do częściowego wzmocnienia triflex® R, około ±10° skrętu na ogniwo łańcucha, duża wytrzymałość na rozciąganie poprzez przegub kulowy. W międzyczasie zakres produktów triflex® R składa się z ponad 100 części tak, że mogą być spełnione wszystkie wymagania od dużych robotów spawających do małych robotów granulujących. triflex® R uzyskał nagrodę projektową iF.

Typowe sektory przemysłu oraz zastosowania:

First choice for industrial robots, machine tools, 6-axle handling equipment, conveyor technology, general mechanical engineering and many more.

Increased speeds and acceleration by exchanging festoonings with e-chains®.

CNC machine

This equipment is used to machine metal components used in construction equipment.

Zoom X-Ray detector

Only maintenance-free components can be used in this x-ray application.

Robots in the automotive industry

An uncluttered work space without distracting cables for high reliability.

Spot-welding robot

An uncluttered work space and fewer malfunctions are possible without distracting cables.

Inspection robot

Light-weight and mobile robot to inspect pipes on inclines and declines.

Przemysł samochodowy

Multidimensionally moveable energy supply systems provide the highest flexibility and the longest holding times in all complex movements, and at the same time are installation friendly.

Clean room technology

The number of freely hanging cables should be bundled together. The specific movements executed by the robot stress the energy cables to a high degree.

Przemysł farmaceutyczny

The task was to design a reliable handling and also update it optically according to the latest technology.

8 hours saved in installation

By the use of triflex® RS, the start-up of a complete system for robot-aided production of household appliances could be shortened from 12 to 4 hours.

Multi-axis robots

Maintenance free with cables and multi-dimensional energy chains.

Satellite salvage service

An increasing amount of space junk, in other words no longer required or defect parts from space missions orbiting the earth, is also threatening current missions.

Household appliances production

Just 24 hours passed between order, delivery and installation. The entire system functions without any problem from the first day on.


Dust, sand, heat and rain: Energy chain for the solar technology for multiaxial movements in a photovoltaic plant.


Design of a machine tool with highly integrated mechatronic milling module.

Suspended articulated arm robot

triflex® R as a complete solution for several tasks at once on a suspended robot

Linia montażowa

Robot in a Ford assembly line in Cologne.

Systemy przenoszące

System przenoszący z robotami do płytek drukowanych Elastyczny system zasilania energią w zastosowaniu w technologii czystego pomieszczenia.

Automatic screwdriver system

A faultless supply of screws is guaranteed by the bend protection of the triflex® R system.

Robot Dummy

Bardzo duże przyspieszenia były tu dużym wyzwaniem dla konstruktorów tego robota.

Prowadzenie kabla na robocie

Prior to the use of the e-chain®, the cables were fastened with cable ties. That frequently led to entangled cables and the corkscrew effect, which lets the cables become susceptible to core ruptures.

Prowadzenie kabla na robocie

W przypadku tych robotów, węże musiały być wymieniane co kilka tygodni.

Prowadzenie kabla na robocie

W przypadku tego robota przemysłowego , sztywna rura między osią czwarta a szóstą została zastapiana, elastycznym prowadnikiem triflex® R.

The rotary motion in both directions by up to 310° is also possible at high speeds of up to 20 meters per second.

Robot do przenoszenia malowanego okręgu.

For the handling of printed circuit boards, a six-axis robot is used in the case of this application instead of the usual linear systems.

Photovoltaic tracking system

Automatically aligning the photovoltaic tracking systems to the position of the sun with the aid of lubricant-free plastic plain bearings produces a particularly high efficiency.

Robot spawający laserem

This laser welding robot works extremely fast. Here, a very flexible and, above all, fail-safe energy supply system is required.
