August 26, 2019 - igus has developed plastic mounting clamps for energy chains on cobots that are designed to ensure a safe interaction between humans and machines.
The plastic clamps can be attached to the arm of the robot by a screw connection. The triflex R is attached to the clamp by a clip and fixed. The clamps are suitable for cobots from Universal Robots, TMS and Kuka LBR iiwa robot arms.
For the reliable energy supply to cobots and industrial robots, igus offers its triflex R series as an energy chain solution. In addition to metal clamps, users can now use clamps in the human-robot collaboration design to attach the energy chain to the robot arm. The design uses rounded edges to reduce the risk of injury when in contact with the robot.
The triflex R series has been specifically developed for 6-axis robots in industrial environments. By combining the hose with the stability of an energy chain, the round triflex R ensures cable guidance in three-dimensional movements.
A ball/socket principle ensures tensile strength and installation of the e-chain. The interior separation is freely selectable. The circular bend radius stop and the high twistability of the e-chain prevent the over-stressing of cables.
The triflex e-chains are available as a complete package with human-robot collaboration clamps, cables and connectors ready for connection.
