igus’ new Triflex RSE system prevents looping of the cable carrier, allowing power, data and media to be safely supplied to the end of the robotic arm. The system was designed for use with the Triflex R line of cable carriers from igus, which are available in a variety of diameters and styles. A large range of mounting options are available, allowing the system to be fitted to a variety of robot models.
The extremely lightweight RSE system is based around the company’s self-lubricating, maintenance-free DryLin linear bearings. A moving carriage guides the cable carrier, allowing for a retraction stroke of up to 23.6 in., while a durable elastic cord automatically retracts any excess slack, preventing loop formation within the system. The low profile RSE features integrated adjustable attachment plates, which allow the system to be mounted close to the robot, making RSE a space-saving and cost-effective solution.
