Coping with cables on multi-axis robotsIn a video, igus demonstrates how simple it is to set up the triflex RSP (retraction system pneumatic) on a 6-axis robot. Part of the triflex series, the RSP is an intelligent retraction system for multi-axial robotic applications.

The RSP system offers consistent pullback forces on the triflex R robot energy chain; it is adjustable and can be attached to various multi-axis robotic arms quickly and easily. Lightweight and space-saving, triflex RSP is also available with optional monitoring system for robots that have programme sequences that are changed frequently, alternate, or are not 100-percent predictable.

While the triflex RSP is well suited to applications that include heavy fill weights, such as welding robots, its modular design enables complex movements, and is therefore suitable across a wide range of industries and applications including flip over, handling equipment, plastics and vehicle manufacturing.
