Protecting Precision Machine Tools
Protecting Motion Components with Dynatect’s Way Covers
In machine tools, moving parts must be shielded from work processes while still maintaining unobstructed motion. However, static protective enclosures are often not feasible due to the close proximity of these parts.
Replacing vital components such as precision ball screws or ways can be costly, exceeding the expense of adding replaceable protective guards. That’s why you may be looking for a protective cover, and Dynatect has been producing flexible and dynamic covers for machine tool makers and users for over 75 years.
