E-chains are mainly used for guidance and protection for moving cables are innovative products that can be assembled quickly


·        Able to move multi-dimensionally - High degree of flexibility, even on the 6th axis. Twist up to approx. ± 10° per link possible in the longitudinal axis. This assist guiding the cables and lines around difficult configurations

·        High tensile strength due to special ball-and-socket principle enables flexible movement along all axes

·        Impact-resistant, dirt-repelling, rugged and abrasion-resistant, smooth, rounded exterior
 Small bend radius & short pitch - Space-saving installation

·        Easy installation and dismantling - An injection moulded component. No other components (steel cables, spring suspensions etc.) are required

·        High stability - Due to outer stop dogs, defined stops for radius and torsion

·        Triflex® R-Set - compact module for all movements on robots, which can be fixed on existing fastening points

·        Easy attachment to the robot/machine reduces setup time
