The ARS responds to the needs of the crane, machine tool, and automation industries for long travel cable carrier solutions.
NEW BERLIN, WI - Dynamic motion and protection company Dynatect introduces the new Gortrac® Articulated Roller Support (ARS) Long Travel System. The ARS responds to the needs of the crane, machine tool, and automation industries for long travel cable carrier solutions. This Articulated Roller Support is intended for applications up to 300 feet and eliminates the expense, potential damage, and depot storage area of a traditional trough. "Dynatect brings a revolutionary long travel system that eliminates wear and tow force spikes from alignment or failure of guide troughs, glide shoes, and push plates," said Mark Thurman, CEO of Dynatect. "This solution eliminates up to 50% of the force required to push and pull in most applications."
Thurman added that "Dynatect has drawn on over 50 years of cable carrier experience to develop a solution that costs less, eliminates 20% of the weight, and significantly improves safety factors for long travel applications." The ARS Long Travel System supports high load, high acceleration, high speed (greater than 5 feet/second) applications and has been tested through millions of cycles. Installation is faster than traditional trough systems and accommodates many styles of plastic cable carrier.
The new Gortrac ARS is manufactured in Valparaiso, Indiana and supported nationwide through a network of over 60 technical field sales representatives who can be found on the Dynatect website. More information including a summary brochure, can be found online at: info.dynatect.com/ars
