60 years of KABELSCHLEPP
TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP is today one of the world's leading suppliers of cable carriers, guideway protection and conveyor systems. KABELSCHLEPP 1954 launched its steel drag chains. Their inventor Dr Gilbert Waninger and Dr Waldrich, the owner of the company, recognized the great potential of these chains at an early stage.
Until then energy flexibles such as cables and hydraulic hoses had simply been allowed to hang loose from machines, resulting in damage and rapid wear. Thanks to KABELSCHLEPP's vision and innovation all this changed fundamentally - energy flexibles and control cables are now bundled, guided and protected.
KABELSCHLEPP immediately patented this idea – a patent which was to become the first of many over the following years. From the original prototype a variety of steel and plastic models was developed, offering an perfect solution for every area of application. For example in 1967 KABELSCHLEPP invented the first solid plastic cable carrier comprising of one-piece injection-moulded links.
Whether it's for systems which are extremely lightweight, moveable in three-dimensions, link free or extra long cable carriers, with its innovative drive KABELSCHLEPP has over the past 50 years provided important stimulus for industry and remains a technological market leader to the present day.
The 1954 start-up company has since become a global player, with foreign representations and subsidiaries in over 50 countries. KABELSCHLEPP cable carrier systems are in use right round the world, ranging from standard applications such as machine tools, cranes, car-wash plants and medical and laboratory technologies to such complex applications as industrial robots, offshore oil rigs and the space shuttle.
However, KABELSCHLEPP does not stand for cable carrier systems only. Since the 1960s the company has also been developing and manufacturing guideway protection and conveyor systems. Apart from KABELSCHLEPP's leading-edge innovation, it is above all the company's reliable quality which leads to success in all areas. Also telescopic covers, way wiper systems and conveyor systems made by KABELSCHLEPP are used by prestigious machinery producers worldwide.
