Guide Channels

Guide channels are important elements for the reliable functioning with long travel lengths. The upper run of the cable carrier slides on the lower run and on the sliding area of the guide channel behind the fixed point. Guide channels prevent the upper run from slipping off the lower run, ensuring quiet running with low wear. For vertical applications such as elevators or storage and retrieval systems, a vertical channel provides optimum guiding.

Important information

Depending on the chain size, the inner channel width is 4-5 mm larger than the width of the guided cable carrier. Depending on the travel length, the connection height of the cable carrier must be reduced. Please contact us! We will be happy to calculate the suitable guide channel for your application.
