igus (East Providence, RI) has launched Guidelok Slimline (SL), a system designed to safely guide cables at heights up to 262 feet. Guidelok SL is designed for vertical cable carrier applications operating on storage-and-retrieval units in high-bay warehouses, as well as elevators and material-handling equipment. It is designed to be compact and easy to install, even when being retrofitted. Normally a hanging cable carrier is guided vertically in an enclosed trough system. With Guidelok SL, these types of trough systems can be eliminated. Furthermore, it locks the cable carrier into position using a unique design.
