Protecting your cables and hoses from wear is one of the top challenges you might encounter in a long travel material handling application.
Whether you’re moving heavy loads off of ships in a port area or as part of your mining operations, you need a cable carrier system that has strong structural integrity and is reliable over long distances.
With correct crossbar design and material, you can extend the life of your cables and hoses and minimize maintenance costs. Aluminum crossbars, for example, are stronger and hold up much better to UV exposure than traditional nylon crossbars. Aluminum is also less abrasive than nylon, protecting the outer jackets of cables and hoses.
If you are looking for a solution to maximize your cable life in a long travel system, the TKHD Series of Tsubaki®-KabelSchlepp® offers several advantages.
The TKHD Series: Delivering for the Long Term
The TKHD Series is Tsubaki-KabelSchlepp’s proven long-distance, heavy-load specialist. One of the most important differences between the TKHD Series and its competitors is that the TKHD cable carrier features mechanically locked links for superior strength and aluminum horizontal crossbars for enhanced protection against cable and hose wear.
Additionally, the TKHD-R cable carrier is designed with an integrated roller. This roller allows the cable carrier to be pushed or pulled with less force. The roller also extends the life of the cable carrier by reducing the amount of gliding friction.
The TKHD Series also features:
• Massive, enclosed stain-repellent stop system
• Sidebands that are robust and easy to assemble
• Reinforced pin bore connection
• Easy access for cable installation and replacement of components
• Replaceable glide shoes for longer service life in gliding applications
Other benefits include stainless steel ball bearings with application-specific lubrication, and plastic rollers to ensure quiet and smooth operation. Also, integrated, wear-free damping systems minimize the mechanical load for the entire system.
