Trailing Cable


The cable for carrying electricity from a permanent line or trolley wire to a movable machine, such as used in mining or quarrying. The cable is heavily insulated and protected with either galvanized steel wire armoring, extra stout braiding hosepipe, or other material.

These cables are used in conveyor machinery such as transfer cars, boom-stackers, side arm chargers, bulk material conveyors etc.

They find application in almost every industry segment like Steel Mills, Cement Plants, Docks, Power Plants, Automobile Industries & Refineries and Petrochemicals.
