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.
One-sided arrangement – with lower driver connection and reverse bending radius (standard)
One-sided arrangement – high connection
Opposite arrangement – with lower driver connection and reverse bending radius (standard)
Opposite arrangement – high connection
Depending on the chain size, the inner channel width is 4-6 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.
The calculated channel and support lengths are rounded to a reasonable production or installation dimension of the section lengths. A possible travel reserve must be taken into account. Standard section lengths are specified for each channel design.
For different distances between the fixed points and drivers in your application please contact us.
