A cable drag chain is a protective covering that secures cables or hoses to keep them separated and permit movement around automated machinery. Consequently, with numerous industries embracing automation, the need for these drag chains is essential.

Not all sectors use the same terminology for drag chains. They have several other names, including:

  • Cable chains
  • Cable tracks
  • Energy chains
  • Cable drag chains
  • Cable carriers

Regardless of terminology, these devices serve the same purpose. When a moving object requires cables or hydraulic hoses to move, such as automated machinery, the cables require protection. By enclosing the cables or hoses into a carrier, you prevent the pieces from tangling with each other and the machinery.

The machine also avoids unexpected shutdowns from having cables compromise its moving parts, stopping its operation. Additionally, the cable carrier can protect the hoses or cables inside from friction and excessive heat of the machinery’s operation. The temperatures of the machinery’s operation will determine the best type of material to use for the cable track.


Cable drag chains have been an integral part of manufacturing since their introduction in the 1950s. This innovation prevents damage to cables that would otherwise hang loosely on the machine until it is damaged enough to require replacement.

Cable drag chains have evolved over time with the development of machinery. As automated machines move faster and more efficiently, cable tracks have changed their design to keep pace—modern designs can cover longer distances than was imagined in past decades.

This innovation happened by adding accessories such as wheels to promote smoothness in long distance movements. Another advance is the development of heavy-duty energy chains for harsh environments, such as high-wear and high-stress operations in automated equipment.
