Configuring the Right Robot Equipment in Just a Few Clicks

The new igus robot equipment on-line configurator helps identify the right energy supply system for industrial robots. The free online tool can be used to find the ideal system for virtually every robot available on the market from over 400 models.

Industrial robots are capable of high-performance three-dimensional movement.
Energy supply systems reliably protect cables and hoses during these highly dynamic movements – often in three-shift operation and lasting many years. However, appropriate protection is only guaranteed if all the components are matched to the respective robot model.
A time-consuming and error-prone selection process. The igus solution: the robot equipment configurator. This enables you to quickly find the right system based on the triflex R energy chain from igus. Easy to install and easy to fill, this multi-axis energy chain protects moving cables on the robot in every direction and thus increases its service life in operation.

Get the right robot equipment in just a few steps
With the robot equipment tool, the user saves time and money during the configuration. The way to the right energy supply system is extremely short at igus.
At the user selects the robot manufacturer, then decides on the type and model as well as the axes that they want to equip.
The picture then shows visualisations of the robot and components of the energy supply system. The next step is the choice of a retraction system, which keeps the energy chain under tensile stress, to avoid looping and protect against damage. The user then configures the triflex R e-chain type and the size.
Optionally, they can then add extra protectors and triflex R chain links. The configurator automatically creates a list of all the components of the energy supply system, which can also be added to the shopping cart. Another click will take you to the CAD models of the components and a PDF report of the configuration.
