Number of links (Figures below decimal point are raised to one positive number)
πR + 2K (R: Bending radius (mm), K: Play (mm))
I: Distance from intermediate point (mm) when the fi xed-end is
not in the middle of transfer stroke (when the transfer stroke is in the intermediate point : 0)
*1）K in the figure is required minimum allowance length
which should be secured both moving end and fixed end. (Please refer here
for details of dimension K.)
*2）Please make inquiries for special travel conditions.
*3）When distance I is added to the plus (right) side from the center position of the transfer stroke S,
the moving end can transfer further in the right direction by the same value as I. Also, when distance
I is added to the minus (left) side from the center position of the transfer stroke S, the moving end
can transfer further in the left direction by the same value as I.
The conditions of link number calculation with above formula are as follows.
・The weight of cables and tubes shall be considered as 0.
・The transfer stroke range shall not be affected by distance I.
