Small festoon systems

Trailing cables are often used to supply moving machine parts with energy, data and gaseous or liquid substances. Cables and hoses are fastened in festoon systems, which allow them to move smoothly and without great mechanical stress along the travel path.

VAHLE has a large standard range of small festoon systems. The flexible systems can accommodate both round and flat cables and can be attached to different track profiles.

The rollers and bearings of the cable trolleys are protected in the rails against moisture, dust or icing. As a result, the systems ensure safe, reliable operation of hoists and transport systems of all types even under adverse conditions.

Existing power and data cables can be integrated into the festoon systems to enable simple on-site connection. In addition, the travel rails can be adapted to the course of the track – depending on minimum radii and cable sags.

This makes the small cable carriers the right solution for virtually any application.
