CATRAC® is used as a cable carrier on various types of machinery as a means of safely and efficiently conveying power, electrical, air, or fluid (or a combination of these) to equipment in motion. CATRAC is designed to be maintenance-free and to protect cables and hoses from abrasion, wear, and twisting. A wide variety of options are available.
The center pivot design of the cable carrier allows for smoother cycling and minimal hose movement. The CATRAC design offers “no pinch points” to insure operator safety. Standard side links are high tensile steel for maximum strength. Steel CATRAC is zinc plated with a yellow dichromate dip for superior corrosion resistance. Optional materials, such as aluminum, stainless steel and Nylon are available.
We also offer a line of Mill Duty CATRAC cable carriers that is used in rugged applications and environments such as steel mills. These CATRACs offer a box beam type carrier for maximum strength and stability. Spring loaded rods offer the customer easy access to cables and hoses. They also eliminate the concern of fitting sizes that must pass through the (fixed) compartment opening on a box beam style carrier. Hardened shoulder bolts and locknuts (referred to as bolted construction) are recommended for use in rugged environments. The CATRAC is manufactured so that pieces or sections can be removed or replaced in the field.
Our CATRAC product offers a variety of sizes from 2” to 14” high links, carrier options from welded carriers, split aluminum bar carriers, rod carriers, removable pipe, spring-loaded rods, vertical pins, double deck, custom radius “M” dimension (including double radius), custom and special widths, including single widths, double widths, triple widths, etc. We offer various support systems from single stationary roller support to a complete CATRAC carriage support system.
We provide the optimum system to suit your needs either with our standard cable carriers and options or by means of a custom-designed system. In addition to our standard systems used in a linear motion, we can also provide you with double radius side mounted systems.
