Your partner for crane applications

KABELSCHLEPP specializes in cable carriers for all types and sizes of cranes and has been a pioneer in dynamic cable and hose carrier systems ever since the invention of the original cable carrier that was patented by KABELSCHLEPP in 1954.

As modern crane systems demand increasingly higher cycle rates and travel speeds, they need cable management solutions that can hold up to the new requirements. To meet these demands, today’s port cranes and lifting devices require lightweight plastic cable carriers that offer high speed, high acceleration and high durability.

Cable carrier systems made of plastic can help you to adapt your systems to meet these new demands. TSUBAKI KABEL­SCHLEPP has solutions for even extremely long travel applications that require high travel speeds and accelerations.

Since 1954, KABELSCHLEPP cable carriers have been proved in the field and provide high reliability, high quality, and cost-effective cable routing solutions that can also satisfy increasingly challenging needs of the future.


TSUBAKI KABELSCHLEPP is a total solution provider. Our half-century of experience and thousands of installed applications worldwide make us a competent partner that you can rely on for your applications. Our specialists will support you from planning through installation and start-up of the complete system.

In order to achieve an optimal upgrade to the respective equipment, our experts will coordinate the components for your application on-site. As required, we use standard components or we can custom configure our systems to adapt them to the existing structures.

  • site measuring for best engineering and assembly planning
  • on-site-training custom tailored to the application
  • application specific assembly and maintenance manuals
  • CAD documentation of the installation in 2D and 3D formats for your records

Benefits of cable & hose carriers for cranes

  • cost-effective (compared to festoon systems) due to shorter cable lengths – no inefficient hanging loops are required
  • extended cable service life – the cables are only bend in a defined bend radius and do not have to absorb any pulling forces
  • very long travel lengths possible
  • weatherproofed for offshore/onshore conditions
  • low maintenance
  • secure protection of cables and hoses even in high wind ­conditions, no mechanical loads on the crane
  • secure data transfer with LWL cables
  • no additional drives and control units necessary
  • all power, control, data, pneumatic, water or hydraulic cables in one system
