1. Rotary motion with TwisterChain®
Circular movements can be achieved using a few different solutions from the igus® Energy Chain® cable carrier range. The TwisterChain® product line offers the biggest selection for rotary movements. TwisterChain® solutions are particularly recommended for space-restricted applications, such as articulated robots, revolving tables, etc.
2. Rotary motion with standard Energy Chains® The video opposite shows an RBR (reverse bend radius) application that was solved using standard Energy Chain® cable carriers. Such solutions are possible if a great deal of space is available and if the angles of rotation are limited to a maximum of 450°. All igus® Energy Chains®, Energy Tubes and Chainflex® continuous-flex cables are appropriate for this kind of application.
