    New glide plate for Alu Guide channels

TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP has fitted its modular Alu Guide System with a plastic glide plate whichcan easily be integrated into the channel wall without tools and ensures smooth gliding of the cable carrier. The improved gliding properties can also save drive power, which results in lower energy consumption. An optimized damping band reduces noise generation and ensures quiet running of the cable carrier.

The Alu Guide system for extended travel lengths and high loads ensures smooth guiding during gliding operation and quiet running of the cable carrier. The channel is suitable for one-sided or opposite arrangement of cable carriers, with or without glide plate. The open version prevents dirt deposits and lets liquids drain away during operation.

Description and features:

TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP offers the 2000 mm long standardized channel profiles in three sizes from stock; they can be individually adjusted to the width of the carrier. Stand-alone installation kits for indoor and outdoor use ensure fast and easy mounting, whereby the elements can be bolted onto C-rails or directly onto any level surface (steel frame or consoles). This makes the Alu Guide system ideal for gantries and axes in the field of machine tools, but also for irrigation systems or workshop cranes. The material is resistant to seawater and can therefore also be used in maritime applications, such as on STS cranes.

Driving digitalization:

A prerequisite for machines to communicate with each other and robots to take over tasks is a lifeline for power supply and the exchange of data and signals. The TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP cable carriers protect and guide the indispensable cables - cable spaghetti and communication problems cannot occur in the first place.
