Enclosed e-chain® cable carriers for
protection against dirt, chips & debris

Fully enclosed cable carriers can be used to protect cables and hoses against hot metal debris, wood chips, dirt and dust generated in steel works, wood-processing plants, pulp factories, textile manufacturing, farming, coal-fired plants, and many other demanding environments. Components exposed to rough operating conditions significantly compromise the service life of cables and hoses resulting in expensive downtime. The need to ensure the reliability of your machine tools calls for the use of chip-resistant products.
