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.
