Cable Chains Cable Chain Systems manufactured in plastic and metal and in open and closed configurations Cable chain systems often operate in some of the most arduous industrial environments, where there may be swarf, coolant, extremes of temperature and the effects of weather. It is essential therefore that these systems are both robust in their design and reliable in operation. Buttkereit has over 30 years’ experience in the design and supply of cable chain systems. We can supply the systems in plastic, zinc plated steel or stainless steel. Other materials are available if the application requires it. We are also able to supply all support troughs, rollers and cables that may be required.

Large Steel Chain Applications GKA Type steel chain can provide solutions for very large applications.

All design and specification is carried out at our UK offices and we can provide a custom solution for any application, no matter how problematic. We also have a wide variety of standard chains in stock, ready for next day delivery.

Long Travel Applications With the Marathon and Rolltrak systems we are able to provide solutions for travel lengths over 100m..

Machine Protection Roll Away & Spring Covers Slideway Wipers & Slideway Coatings A comprehensive range of products for machine protection

Fabric Roller Cover

Our roll-away cover systems with internal torsion springs are a competitively priced solution for the protection of machine tools if there is only limited space available to fit a cover. Our roll-away cover systems fitted with external spring motors are suitable for more demanding applications. They can be manufactured to cover any width and the spring motor can be removed easily and quickly, without having to dismantle the cover first. Spiral Springs are circular telescopic covers that are excellent for the protection of spindles and shafts. This product has over 20 years proven success in protecting against swarf, dust and liquids, combined with high temperature stability and chemical resistance. WMB spirals are manufactured from polished blue steel or high-grade stainless steel; they distinguish themselves in safety and performance, and in addition require little maintenance.

For Applications where a bespoke wiper solution is required, we are able to manufacture wipers to your drawings. This can be achieved by fabricating from our straight lengths, suitable for smaller quantities. For larger quantities we can manufacture moulded wipers to ensure the highest accuracy and repeatability. If you would like to discuss a fabricated or moulded wiper solution please contact our design team to discuss your application further.

SKC slideway coatings are used for the production of guideways and sliding surfaces. Originally developed to be used for machine tools, today they are applied to a large variety, including optical, metrology and printing machines.
