From small welding robots to large palletising robots, energy chain specialist igus has developed a new "RSP" adjustable retraction system for secure cable guidance, which can also be used for large arm sizes and very complex movements.
Available from Treotham Automation, the RSP’s (pneumatic retraction system) force is generated by a pneumatic cylinder.
The retraction force of the system is adjustable by changing the pressure in the cylinder. igus says the force progression remains constant, which ensures secure retraction of the energy chain in the most complicated fillings, with cables and hoses in any position.
The RSP can be attached quickly and easily to various robot models by means of compact mounting brackets.
The systems with various extension lengths (from 500 to 1,000 mm) are space-saving and lightweight.
