Cable & Hose Carrier Systems

To view more information on cable and hose carrier systems select the manufacturer's logo below. Contact us for any further questions or to request a catalog. 


Cables and hoses are critical to running machines and processes, protect your application setup with specifically designed carriers based on your environment and machine requirements. Strain relief, protection, and longer life are the benefits of these carriers ranging from nylon to steel and from basic line guidance chains to full protection tubes. Request a quote.

Description: Cable carriers guide and protect flexible moving cables and hoses on automated machinery, made from a variety of materials. Reducing wear and stress on cables and hoses and preventing entanglement and promoting operation safety. Can be arranged to accommodate horizontal, vertical, rotary and three dimensional movements.

Increasing Cable & Hose Life

When selecting a cable carrier system, always choose a cable carrier that has a minimum bend radius (KR) that is equal to or larger than the manufacturer's recommended minimum continuously flexing bend radius of any of the cables or hoses used in the carrier. Typically, increasing the bend radius of the carrier system will reduce the amount of bending stress that is put on cables and hoses resulting in longer operational life. Therefore, it is recommended to use the largest cable carrier bend radius option that will still fit within your operating envelope. Larger KR = Longer Life


Cables that have failed typically show the following symptoms:

    • Corkscrewing where cables twist in themselves
    • Knotting of conductors underneath the cable jacket
    • Cables twist around one another within a cable carrier system
    • Cables are sticking out between the cable carrier crossbars and getting caught in the bend radius
    • Cables entangled with other cables and crossbars tearing them apart
    • Loss of conductivity through simple breaking of cable conductors

Common causes of cable failure when operating in a cable carrier system:

    • Cables used are not designed for use in continuous flexing operation
    • Cables are packed too tight inside the cable carrier cavities
    • The actual operating bend radius of the application is smaller than the minimum bend radius recommended by the cable manufacturer
    • Cable carrier design is not cable friendly or optimal for the types of cables being used
