igus adds new clamps for energy chains on cobots

igus has developed new plastic mounting clamps for energy chains on collaborative robots designed to help ensure safe interaction between humans and machines.

Users of cobots and industrial robots are already using igus’ three-dimensional and round triflex R e-chains for energy and data supply.

Cobots are mainly used as assistants in simple or interacting activities and, in contrast to large and fast industrial robots, work hand in hand with humans ergonomically.

In addition to metal clamps, users can now use new clamps in the human-robot collaboration design to attach the energy chain to the robot arm.

By combining the flexibility of a hose with the stability of an energy chain, the round triflex R ensures reliable cable guidance in three-dimensional movements.
