Cable carrier systems for extreme applications

28 September 2020 Other technologies

BMG’s extensive portfolio of Tsubaki Kabelschlepp cable carrier systems and safety cables includes S/SX steel cable carriers for heavy mechanical loads in harsh environments, including corrosive conditions. “The S/SX series comprises robust steel cable carriers, with a chain-link sandwich design consisting of two plates welded together for high stability,” says business unit manager, Carlo Beukes.“ This allows contaminants found in harsh environments to fall through the system when the cable carrier is in motion. Dirt build-up, which normally causes blockages of the stroke system, is prevented.”

With conventional cable carrier systems, large amounts of foundry sand, corundum or scale can block the stroke system, resulting in failure and subsequent downtime. The S/SX series allows increased unsupported lengths and large additional loads without sagging. The stroke system is designed for extended service life. Dividers maintain neat cable separation and a cover system enhances cable protection. The series is available with a galvanised finish or stainless steel construction in different dimensions, as well as in durable, lightweight plastic materials, to suit exact requirements.

BMG’s Kabelschlepp range of cable carrier systems and safety cables − known for high productivity, minimal maintenance requirements and reduced downtime − extends from standard individual components to complete system solutions. Applications for Kabelschlepp cable carriers extend from computer plotters and micro-sensitive test and measurement equipment, to rotating reclaimers, offshore drilling rigs and high-speed automated machining centres.
