Designing gliding cable carrier systems for large machinery

March 28, 2017

Compared to cable reels, bus bars or festoon systems, plastic cable carrier systems are an extremely low maintenance, resilient solution which can reduce required installation space and reduce the length of cable required by up to 50%. Over the past several years, cable carrier manufacturers have been increasingly pushing the envelope to develop solutions for higher speeds, harsh environmental conditions, larger loads, and longer travels to develop solutions for large machinery, including cranes, bridges, and more.
