How to Avoid Robot Downtime

Robot downtime is something no company wants to budget for. Stopping production because of a failed cable and/or hose not only costs you money in downtime but also in repairs and labour.

They must undergo the same complicated maneuvers as the robot arm itself, performing all the twists and turns, whips and snaps.

Cable Strain Relief: Benefits and Advantages

Cables are often the first product that show signs of wear in many cable carriers. A properly selected and installed cable carrier tends to run without incident to what could be 5 to 7 years.

At Tsubaki, we always recommend that cables are strain relieved at either end of the carrier to ensure that they are able to reach their factory life span before replacement.
