designers work with Kuka robot or other robot end effectors with
multiple degrees of freedom of movement, Igus Inc., offers a way to
protect cables undergoing extremes in flexion. Triflex R multi-axis
cable carrier comes in two versions. The standard version is built with
enclosed, two-segmented circular links connected by a ball on one link
and a socket on the next. Triflex R Light is similar except that the
links are a single segment, leaving an opening between one link and the
next, lowering carrier weight.
Triflex R Light is reinforced
by three fan-like supports that create three available compartments for
cables and hoses. Triflex R has an inner support that connects to the
link in two places, creating two compartments and also has dual guide
channels for optional fiber rods.
