Feature 1. Longer Service Life

Uses plastic with superior sliding and wear resistance for the glide shoes, which extends service life through increasing wear resistance on the inner link and wear allowance (thickness of the glide shoes).

Feature 2. Power Savings

Reduces cable carrier running resistance and contributes to power savings for machine drives thanks to the superb slidability of the glide shoes.

Power Savings

This is a representative value, not a guaranteed value.

Feature 3. Reduced Running Costs

When glide shoes reach the end of their service (wear) life, the cable carrier can continue to be used simply by replacing the glide shoes (assuming there is no damage to the cable carrier itself).
This reduces the amount of replacement parts and labor cost dramatically compared to cable carriers without glide shoes.
