Increased Flexibility in Power Transmission with High-Protection Cable & Hose Carriers
Jane Alexander | June 28, 2014
U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission, LLC, has introduced TKA Series Cable & Hose Carriers, the newest product family from TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP.
According to the manufacturer, TKA Series Cable Carriers are especially tight, which allows them to better protect cables from dirt, chips and circulating spray water and prevent the ingress of coolants and lubricants. With their enclosed stroke system and pin-hole joint, even large amounts of atomized oil and flying particles no longer pose a problem during cleaning of the work area. This level of protection for the installed cables into the connection area has been tested and confirmed in line with IP54 protection ratings. U.S. Tsubaki says the new cable carrier is the only one in the world to comply with this high-protection rating.
All TKA carriers are also available in extreme-heat-resistant versions that incorporate special material to protect cables against damage, e.g. from chips with temperatures up to 850 C. The optimized geometric shape of the chain links and a triple encapsulated stroke system of this new series allow for extensive unsupported lengths that remain resistant to torsion. These components can be used standing or hanging, and the dividers can be placed in variable arrangements, offering users greater flexibility in their applications.
The U.S. Tsubaki TKA series is offered in multiple size ranges that are available for immediate shipment.
