Extended Travel Support Systems – An Overview

Kabelschepp understands your application's needs for extended travel and offers top-of-the-line solutions that support your operation to maximize efficiency. 


KabelSkate polymer cable carrier from Kabelschlepp Canada

The patented KabelSkate is cost effective and specifically designed for Polymer carrier systems. With travel capability up to 500 meters, KabelSkate doesn’t require a costly guide channel and embodies self –alignment capabilities of cable and hose carrier system.   It has simple construction as it requires minimal number of components and only needs a flat, smooth surface outside of any traffic to run on. It is light-weight due to reduced motor size and has significantly reduced frictional factor, making it easy to move without the use of extra machinery. 


DynaGlide steel cable carrier from Kabelschlepp Canada

DynaGlide should only be used when application calls for steel cable carrier systems for extended travel exceeding unsupported length more than 4x. It uses same basic configuration as an extended travel polymer gliding in guide channel, however, has greater push-pull force, making it more expensive than similar systems from Kabelschlepp. It can be used in single-sided or opposing 2-sided cable carrier arrangement. 


RollerGlide cable carrier system from Kabelschlepp Canada

RollerGlide, used with steel or polymer carrier systems, can operate in challenging environments requiring lower towing forces and higher load capabilities. This includes environments such as but not limited to: steel mills, sewage composting facilities, and metal foundries. It utilizes low friction cam follower rollers, with shielded bearings, that glide on steel rail. This system is safely and accurately guided by two parallel rails that serve as a strong base to endure extremely heavy loads and high speeds.

Rolling Carriage Systems 

Rolling Carriage System for cable carriers from Kabelschlepp Canada

Rolling carriage systems can be used with Steel and Nylon Polymer cable carrier systems. Ideally designed for extended travel high speed applications for over 1 meter per second or when load and operating travel length exceeds 4x the unsupported length of carrier.
