Tsubaki Kabelschlepp (Tsubaki) has said its collection of steel-line cable carriers continue to prove themselves capable of functioning in extreme industrial environments and that its current products are being constantly developed.
In a statement, the company said its steel cable carriers continue to “prove their worth” in the traditional applications of heavy machinery, steelworks, mining and deep drilling.
Depending on the design, steel carriers can withstand temperature loads or application-dependent maximum values of up to 400°C for short periods; stainless steel versions can even withstand temperatures of up to 1,000°C for short periods.
They are also resistant to chemicals and radiation and deliver impressive performance on handling robots and manipulators in chemical plants.
Stainless steel cable carriers, available from Tsubaki at three different quality levels, can be used in the environment of acid baths in electroplating plants, in power plant applications and other applications under radioactive radiation.
Tsubaki steel cable carriers also excel in offshore applications thanks to resistance to seawater and UV radiation.
Its steel-line includes a number of steel cable carriers in various sizes and configurations, with a comprehensive range of accessories available to match.
While the steel cable can last for as much as 50 years, Tsubaki says the benefits of the product stretch beyond its lifespan.
Up to 100% of steel cable carriers can be recycled at the end of their service life, conserving resources and protecting the environment. Using one ton of steel for recycling saves one ton of CO2 emissions and avoids mining 1.5 tons of iron ore.
Furthermore, Tsubaki also has a number of innovations that assist with a port’s digitalization transformation, such as its OnlineEngineer and Quickfinder products that facilitate the exchange of data between different machines.
