Steel Metallic Cable & Hose Carrier Systems

Description: Nearly a half a century ago, Dr. Gilbert Wanninger, an engineer at the German machine tool giant Waldrich Siegen GmbH, dramatically improved the longevity of cable and hose life in moving applications with the invention and patent of the Dynamic Cable & Hose Carrier System. This invention helped found KabelSchlepp and established the inception of the entire cable and hose management industry.

This first carrier was a steel link system and predecessor of our current super duty metallic carrier systems. These high strength steel systems are available in various alloys and plating as well as come in two general configurations: modular open or totally enclosed (tube style).

The incredibly strong and unique contoured twin link system with integral 3 or 4 hardened hinge pin designs provide the load bearing and locking-point for exceptional self-supporting lengths and operational durability.

Steel carrier systems are ideal for heavy mechanical loads, long self-supporting spans, large cables and/or hoses, high ambient operating temperatures, and applications that operate under extreme environmental conditions.

Of course open (can view contents of carrier system) or enclosed (RMD tube Style with contents hidden from view) designs are available.

All such modular super-duty steel systems have vertical and/or horizontal internal cavity partitions available to enable the design engineer the ultimate in safe cable and hose management capabilities.
