Drag chains and cables for long travels in shipyards

Shipyard cranes are mostly huge systems that can lift huge lifting loads and must always work reliably. At the same time, the space available in the shipyards is usually very tight. The requirements for cable guidance therefore lie in systems that are as space-optimized and at the same time powerful as possible, which safely master long travels. In order to achieve this top performance, we offer a comprehensive portfolio of energy chains, cables, guide troughs and complementary accessories.
