igus is promoting its triflex Retraction System Pneumatic (RSP) for multi-axis robots. Light weight and space saving, the triflex RSP is a state-of-the-art adjustable retraction cable management system that offers safe and consistent cable and hose guidance. This is ensured by the constant application of a retraction force of a pneumatic cylinder, with retraction lengths of around 500mm.
Thanks to these features, the triflex RSP is suitable for a wide range of robotic applications and can be quickly and easily adapted to a variety of robot models, including small welding robots and larger palletising robots allowing heavy fill weights and complex movements.
The triflex RSP does not require expensive monitoring systems; in addition, it can accommodate higher cable and hose fill weights than similar systems available on the market and offers a variety of mounting options for various robot manufacturers and types.
As with all igus products, the triflex RSP has undergone vigorous laboratory tests to ensure it can withstand the demands of tough environmental conditions. To watch a short video on how igus parts are used within robots, click here: www.igus.co.uk/TriflexUseOnTheRobot.
