Cable management for automated vertical applications

Liftband is a favorably priced alternative for a whole series of automated applications requiring reliable cable management

Liftband is a favorably priced alternative for a whole series of automated applications requiring reliable cable management - including platform technology where traditional cable carriers would typically be stacked on top of one another and moved in a zigzag fashion.

The Liftband system comprises three basic elements: straight and curved plastic strips and clip-on cable clamps. The connected strip segments determine the basic shape of the whole system as it is lifted into the air, while the cable clamps connect the segments and route the cables.

Despite only constituting a few parts, Liftband allows multiple configurations. Its basic shape can be circular, rectangular or square. This means the system is easily customizable to different customer requirements and space restrictions.

Since the chain links do not rub against one another, the system has an extremely low wear rate and is practically silent when in motion.
