The Alu Guide System (TKAL) for long travel applications and high loads ensures secure guidance and smooth running of the energy chain in a gliding and rolling application.

The standardized channel profiles of 1000 / 2000 mm in length can be individually adjusted to the width of the chain. They can be quickly and easily be installed with the help of a mounting kit. Such UMB mounting kits are also available for attaching the fixed-point of the energy chain.

The optional damping band additionally reduces noise emission and guarantees an even quieter running of the chain.

TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP also offer the Alu Guide System (TKAL) together with the appropriate energy chain as well as with the ready-to-install TOTALTRAX® System including cables.

Important information

As a standard, the mounting kits included with the delivery are installed on all joins as well as at both ends of a channel. If you require more angle brackets beyond this, please state this when ordering.

Fixing Elements

Standard and heavy duty

The internal or external mounting kits made of stainless steel are mounted at the joints, ensuring precise connection of the joints in addition to fastening the channel to the substructure.

Flying joint

The internal and external mounting kits made of stainless steel are mounted with a spacing of 30-500 mm from the joints, ensuring fastening of the channel to the substructure. The mounting kit does not necessarily have to be mounted at the joints.

* More information can be found on page assembly profiles for guide channels.
