RSC – Roller Supported Chain

Cable carriers on rollers for particularly long travel lengths

Rolling instead of gliding – the proven principle for reduced friction

Cable carriers on rollers are a secure and reliable solution wherever a gliding system cannot be installed due to very long travel lengths or strong friction. On the RSC, the upper run does not glide on the lower run but on rollers. The rollers are mounted in roller bearings on the side of the cable carriers and permit very long travel lengths, for which substantially less drive power is required. The tensile/push forces are decreased by up to 90 percent compared to gliding arrangements. Available for the types M0950 and M1300.

Lower costs and shorter maintenance times

If rollers are worn out, they can easily be replaced during maintenance. This means that time-consuming and expensive replacement of the complete cable carrier is no longer necessary. Notches in the channel allow easy visual checks and the rollers are easy to access. That saves time during maintenance and repair work. 

Quiet, low-vibration operation

The rollers run on the guide rail and do not knock against other rollers. Ball bearings and a plastic roller surface support quiet, smooth operation.

Easy maintenance – rollers can be replaced without having to replace the side bands
