This robot ensures to transport components faster from one press to the other. A conventional six-axis robot would need to be upgraded with a seventh axle to a double lever system. In this case, energy supplies would need to withstand fast 360-degree movements without braking or tangling up. A twisterchain from igus® ensures safe cable guiding for the circular movments and hence increases the availability of the system and the lifetime of the cables.
