New Guide System for Aluminum Apron Covers
Press release date: June 27, 2008
Kirchheim/Munich,Germany -- Hennig, a supplier of machine protection systems, specializing in complete subassemblies of XYZ systems, has introduced a new non-motorized guide system specifically for the use of aluminum aprons.
The system works in a purely mechanical manner and is extremely easy to push or pull. Depending on the type of apron (Aluflex or GS20), a reversing or winding system allows guiding in one or two directions. The available space next to, or inside, the machine determines the type of apron guide: whether to roll up or reverse, in an elliptical or spiral movement, in every orientation, even overhead.
This system has already proven itself in an outstanding manner for all XYZ modules. The guide is suitable for high speeds exceeding 328 feet per minute (100 meters per minute) and acceleration exceeding 1g, and shows practically no wear and tear under these conditions.
