High endurance, insertable polyurethane wipers keep the cover clean and seal out chips, dust and coolants. Special mounting features eliminate wiper lip distortion and make maintenance a quick easy process.
The standard “C” style wiper and casing provides protection of the wiper from hot chips.
Special, high quality heavy-gauge sheet steel is used to withstand the abuses of the shop environment. Sheet thicknesses range from 1.5 mm (16 gauge) to 3 mm (11 gauge) depending on the application.
Wrap around construction ensures precise location of individual cover sections and automatically provides the necessary initial preload for the flexible wipers.
Brass or non-metallic guides are used on the top and sides of the covers. Small and medium size covers are supported with non-metallic, low friction guide shoes.
Guidance Option: Support rollers
To ensure smooth, accurate operation, large covers are provided with ball or needle bearing rollers. Covers utilizing support rollers require a hardened way surface or auxiliary guidance track.
Way extension brackets extend from the machine ways to provide support for the
cover while it is in a compressed position.
Depending on speed and size of application, scissors can be used for a smooth operation.
Option: Inspection openings
For quick, easy inspections hinged or Plexiglass® panes may be specified.
Option: Lifting lugs
For ease of installation lifting lugs are provided on all covers weighing over 150 pounds.
Option: Telescopic damping elements
Bumpers are used based on machine speeds.
For high-speed applications, telescoping steel covers must meet extreme requirements. Hennig develops telescoping steel covers to suit any position and application, accelerations of up to 2.5 g and speeds of up to 200 m/min., depending on the individual geometry and size. The telescoping steel covers are tested on our own high-speed test bench in long-term tests according to the customers’ parameters.
