AUTO-GLIDE cable carriers

For long travels without trough guides


Long travel distances always pose special requirements on an Energy Chain System®.
From a certain point, the upper run needs the potential to glide on the lower run or on glide bars and the Energy Chain System® requires guidance to prevent a lateral offset.

In most instances, a guide trough can be used, but for applications with limited space, there is AUTO-GLIDE: a self-aligning cable carrier that eliminates the need for a guide trough in applications with travels up to 164 feet.

AUTO-GLIDE cable carrier

Version 1: Available for almost all System E4 Series. Here the crossbars in the interior radius of the Energy Chain® are injection-molded with glide shoes.

 
AUTO-GLIDE version 2 cable carriers

Version 2: For igus® E-Z Chain cable carriers.

 
cable carriers AUTO-GLIDE version 3

Version 3: For System E2 cable carriers. The special glide shoes keep the Energy Chain® in place.
