Technical Data

  • bending radii: 15 - 400 mm (0.59" - 15.75")
  • inner height: 7 - 50 mm (0.28" - 1.97")
  • inner width: 7 - 195 mm (0.28" - 7.68")
  • weight: 0.06 - 2.7 kg/m (0.04 - 1.81 lb/ft)


Long term temperature limits are between -20ºC and 100ºC (-4ºF and 212ºF).


The maximum travel distance is given by the arrangement and the load (weight of the lines). At normal arrangements the maximum travel distance is double the free carrying length. Support rollers or similar equipment may exceed this value. In gliding arrangements travel distances up to 100 m are possible (according to the application).


There are no limits for the travel speed in general. But with gliding arrangements application specific influences have to be taken into account.


There are no limits for the accelerations, in general. Limits may occur through the tensile stresses at high line weights.

"The Hennig cable carrier is the easiest to integrate, easiest to use, easiest to open, easiest to reassemble, and is a long-lasting cable carrier....It has redefined our assembly process and made adding tools to a Star Lab enjoyable for our customers. I would highly recommend Hennig’s cable carrier to anyone who wants a quality, easy-to-use cable carrier."

Cable carriers, commonly referred to as energy chains, are machine components that guide and protect cables and hoses on a variety of linear motion applications.

Cable carriers are used reliably in numerous applications in which energy is transported. We serve a wide range of industries from the textile industry to robotics.

If you have a cable routing application but are unsure which system is the right one, talk to Hennig to get a precise plan for your application. We design and install cable carrier systems for a huge range of industries, and we’re happy to help however we can.
