FTP Series

Link and link, or link and end link, connection forms a spherical surface with a loose fit.

This spherical surface allows 3D movement and torsional (rotational) movement. The link end face constrains the bending radius (R100).

FTP026 38 26 100

2. Features

Cable/hose protection
Cannot bend less than a certain bending radius. In addition, it prevents debris from infiltrating and does not damage cables/hoses.
Simple structure and allows for cutting/connecting.
Composed of links with the same shape. Allows for cutting/connecting and easy length adjustment.
Lightweight, clean and quiet
Uses engineering plastic for everything but the pins.
Allows for 2D movement, and straight/free-standing arrangements are possible.
2D movement is possible by inserting pins, which prevents lateral buckling. In addition, mounting rings prevent bending and enable straight/free-standing arrangements.
