Treotham presents a new robot equipment configurator
from igus, designed to help users find a safe energy supply 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 for many
years. However, appropriate protection is only guaranteed if all the components
of the energy supply system are matched to the respective robot model – this can
involve a time-consuming and error-prone selection process.
igus’ robot equipment configurator enables users to
quickly find the right system based on the triflex R energy chain available from
Treotham. Easy to install and easy to fill, this multi-axis energy chain
protects moving cables on the robot in every direction, thus increasing its
service life in operation.
With the online robot equipment tool, the user saves time and money during the configuration. The
user simply selects the robot manufacturer, and picks 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 user selects a retraction system, which keeps the
energy chain under tensile stress to avoid looping and protect against damage.
The user 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.
One more click will take the user to the CAD models of the components and a PDF
report of the configuration.
