Drag chains feature innovative divider system
To meet the heterogeneous demands of applications in the field of Industry 4.0, Kabelschlepp Metool has developed the new Master drag chains LE60/LE80 with the innovative divider system TS3. The reduced wall thickness of the divider system lets customers benefit from more space in the interior: compared to the previous cable carrier, this achieves a space saving of 50% in the vertical and 37.5% in the horizontal. At the same time, the new Master drag chains are easy to open and fill, for time-saving harnessing from all sides.
“The requirements for dynamic cable routing are becoming increasingly more complex in the age of Industry 4.0. On the one hand, the packaging space in the machines is decreasing, while on the other hand customers want more space inside the cable carrier,” Werner Eul, product manager for cable carrier systems at Tsubaki Kabelschlepp explains. “In addition, the cables differ with regard to function, cross section and sheathing material.” The new Master drag chains LE60/LE80 with the newly developed divider system TS3 can fully meet these requirements.
The new divider system TS3 combines space-saving, flexible inner distribution with very quick opening. This allows users to easily keep the necessary overview for installation and harnessing. The matching dividers allow users to always achieve the best possible result with regard to space requirements, systematic placement and ease of assembly. For greatest possible flexibility, all individual components can be combined flexibly and changed or added later on.
