Flexible Tubing for Robotic Arms

Corrugated Tubing is a flexible conduit for wires or hydraulic fluids that is designed to bend and compress with the movements of today's automated machines.

Normally, it is believed that tubes cannot be bended or shaped in desired direction according to requirement due to their strong nature and physical properties adhered in them. Although, it is true to some extent but, this myth does not stand true when you understand the physical properties offered by corrugated tubing which plays a crucial role in that industries which deals in the protection of wires and hydraulic fluids . An interesting fact about the corrugated tubing is that it can be changed into any shape with deep corners without leaving any impact on its inside diameter.


Developed from FEP or PFA tubing, these Teflon tubes are used as electronic or fluid pipeline in industries where robots are used for transmission of electronic wiring, disruptive chemicals and gaseous elements. Corrugated FEP Tubing provides a complete protection to the cables that inserted inside them for performing various operations under high temperature.

The characteristic features of corrugated FEP tubing system can be referred below;
• Chemically Inert Fluoropolymer Tubing.
• Works as a flexible pipelines that makes smooth flow of different elements without any disruption.
• The tubing system is light weight and easy to work with.
• Capable of bearing extreme temperature up to 500 F.
• FDA Compliant resins.
• Standard sizes from : 1/4″ - 3/8″ - 1/2″ - 5/8″ - 3/4″ - 7/8″ - 1″ - 1 1/4″ - 1 1/2″ - 2″
• Can be compressed at the ratio of 2:1.

The corrugated FEP tubing system is mainly used in robotics, automotive, chemical, aeronautic, medical and electrical industries. Installation of this Teflon tubing system helps the flow of fluids without affecting other mechanical items that are installed in different products developed by these industries.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
