July 30, 2008 - Designed for speeds from 98-262 fpm, Transport Mechanism for Telescoping Steel Covers eliminates high limit stop forces and corresponding noises in all operational positions, moving smoothly when covers are pulled apart as well as when they come together. Mechanically muffled unit travels on guides for stability. Since mechanism is not positively driven, it does not need to move entire mass. Depending on length of stroke, only boxes moved are those required for clearance.

Press release date: July 21, 2008

Kirchheim/Munich, Germany- In the future, high feed rates and high accelerations will no longer preclude large, heavy telescopic steel covers. Hennig, one of the world's leading suppliers of machine protection systems, has developed a transport mechanism especially for this type of application, for speeds between 98 feet and 262 feet per minute (30 and 80 meters per minute). In an innovative solution, the new transport mechanism eliminates high limit stop forces and corresponding noises in all operational positions, moving smoothly when the covers are pulled apart as well as when they come together.

Test runs at speeds exceeding 328 feet per minute (100 meters per minute) and accelerations exceeding 1g were absolutely trouble-free. Large masses and a large number of boxes are a welcome challenge for this transport mechanism. The system is not positively driven; as a result, it doesn't need to move the entire mass. Depending on the length of the stroke, the only boxes moved are the ones required for clearance. The mechanically muffled units travel on guides which guarantee extremely high stability.

Hennig, Inc., at, has been designing and producing custom machine protection and chip/coolant management products for state-of-the-art machine tools for over 50 years. Hennig products are designed to protect against corrosion, debris and common workplace contaminants. Hennig has manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Germany, France, Brazil, India, Japan, China and South Korea. Its North American repair centers are located in Machesney Park, Ill.; Chandler, Okla.; Charlotte, N.C.; Livonia, Mich.; Blue Ash, Ohio; Kitchener, Ontario, Canada; Mexico City, Mexico; and Saltillo, Mexico.
