System E4/4 Cable Carrier Applications for Long Travel Distances

System E4/4 cable carriers can be used for extremely long travels and for unsupported, side-mounted applications. This is due to its special construction, which enhances stability while increasing resistance to harsh weather and other adverse conditions.  Special roller chain links make the E4/4 cable carrier the real long-travel specialist. E4/4 is also available in a material optimized for electrostatic discharge (ESD) applications.

Typical applications:

  • Cranes, including RTGs and quayside cranes
  • Compost, concrete, chemical, mineral, welding and agricultural plants
  • Unsupported, side-mounted applications on machine tools
  • Construction equipment
  • ESD applications
  • Heavy duty machinery
  • Steel works
  • Shipyards
