Energy chain specialist Tsubaki Kabelschlepp has introduced a new heavy-duty carrier series for demanding crane and bulk industry applications with long travel lengths, designated the TKHD series.
To ensure the highest robustness and solidity, the design incorporates an encapsulated stroke system, a dirt-resistant outer contour and a reinforced bolthole connection, along with a special double-fork and tab design for the sidebands.
Quiet running is ensured by an integrated brake and integrated noise damping, whereby the latter works continuously in the chain radius, as well as in the straight length. The pitch of 90mm and the polygon-optimised outer contour support the quiet running of the cable carrier. “Plastic cable carriers of this size with a smaller pitch were previously not available, so we are filling a gap in the market,” said Peter Sebastian Pütz, head of Crane Business at Tsubaki Kabelschlepp.
With an inner height of 87mm, the width of the TKHD series can be precisely adapted to the available space, thanks to aluminium stays in 1mm increments, the company added. The vertical inner distribution can also be changed flexibly, thanks to fixable dividers.
Users benefit from fast installation, as the cable carriers can be quickly opened inwards and outwards for the installation of cables and hoses. The TKHD series is designed so that it can be used in gliding,
rolling and unsupported configurations.
