Akapp-Stemmann Festoon  is a safe, effective and economical cable transport system. The flat cables to be transported are suspended from trolleys that move along the installation in a steel C-profile with the movable device (see the image opposite).

Akapp-Stemmann Festoon systems are used for uninterrupted electrical feeding and control of all movable apparatus such as:

• cranes
• hoists
• many other apparatus for internal transport
• machines or tools

These systems are used in many applications world-wide, indoors and outdoors, under the most divergent environmental conditions.

Akapp-Stemmann Festoon system
The special shape of the C-profile guarantees smooth running of the cable trolleys. Therefore, mechanical resistance and wear of the trolleys remains low.
The profiles can also be used for outdoor applications or under dusty and humid conditions.
The wheels of the trolleys, riding in the C-profile, clean the surface while running on it, so there’s no gathering of dust etc.
Akapp-Stemmann Festoon is available in different strengths.
