Heavy-Duty Steel Cable Carriers

Steel, stainless steel, and hardened steel cable carriers

When working with ambient temperatures higher than 100° F, our steel tracks are a better option. Steel is more robust and has a bigger box strength, making longer, unsupported spans possible.

  • Optimized Support and Organization: Customize cable/hose arrangements based on application needs with a variety of stay distribution options
  • Easy Assembly/Disassembly: The fast stay assembly and disassembly design simplifies maintenance and adjustments, minimizing downtime
  • Quick Length Adjustment: Enjoy quick and easy length adjustment to  accommodate varying cable lengths and configurations, providing flexibility for your setup
  • Shroud Pivot Mechanics Protection: A protective shield is designed around the pivot mechanisms of the cable carrier to safeguard against external elements such as dirt, debris, and contaminants
  • Travel Distance: The maximum distance of travel is determined by the arrangement and additional weight of the lines, but normal arrangement provides a maximum travel of double the free carrying length; travel distances up to 100 meters are possible
  • Travel Speed and Acceleration: Both standard and stainless steel designs are limited to 1m/s; while there are no specific limits on acceleration, high line weights may impose some limitations due to tensile stresses.
  • Wide Temperature Range: Long term temperature limits are between -20ºC and 600ºC (-4°F and 1112°F). For stainless the limits are -40ºC and 600ºC (-40°F and 1112°F).

Long term temperature limits are between -20°C and 600°C (-4ºF - 1112ºF).

For stainless the limits are -40°C and 600°C (-40ºF - 1112ºF).


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


The maximum range of travel is determined by the arrangement and the additional weight (line weight).  At normal arrangement the maximum travel is double the free carrying length. Support rollers or similar constructive steps can increase this value. Travel distances up to 100 meters are possible.


The standard and stainless steel designs are limited at 1 m/s.



"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.
