Igus Inc: Cable carrier
The Twister from igus, inc. (East Providence, RI) is an energy chain cable carrier designed specifically for rotary applications such as articulating robots.
Traditional carriers are usually limited to a 90°-turned reverse bend radius forcing the side-mounted carrier into a wider arc around the base of the machine or robot than is optimal. By contrast the Twister is constructed with a wider variation of chain and circle radii in mind. This design saves considerable space while still offering the same capabilities and accessibility options as traditional carriers.
