Steel telescopic covers, a series of fabricated steel sections, with swarf and coolant resistant wiper, that are fitted to machine tools to protect slideways, ballscrews and relevant parts connected to the machine table movement. The protection of machine tool, slideways is essential if machine tool accuracy and efficiency is to be maintained, down time reduced, and associated maintenance costs avoided.
With many years of experience, the design know – how, up to date manufacturing processes and experience, combine here at Multifab to meet the needs of to-days customer. Using Cad/Cam technology coupled with our in-house laser facility, Multifab is able to respond quickly to customer’s needs. This includes the in house design of new telescopic covers, repeat orders and the repair/refurbishment of damaged telescopic covers.
The refurbishment of old or damaged covers can be a quick and cost effective solution. Covers specifically for repair can be inspected at your premises or ours, with a detailed quotation available almost immediately. This may include, new Wiper seals, new wear strips, new leafs, repair of damaged leafs, new roller bearings (if fitted), new nylon guide shoes. Guards will then be fitted on a jig here at Multifab to ensure smooth running prior to despatch/ re-fitting. Where machine covers are beyond economical repair Multifab can quote for the manufacture of a new “like for like” set.
All guards are manufactured from high quality CR4 Mild Steel or Stainless Steel, and depending on the design structure can be manufactured to sufficiently withstand the weight of an operator when machine is stationary.
