Dynatect manufactures the largest Telescopic metal covers for machine tools and other automated machines. Check out this video of our most recent large cover spanning 18 ft (5.4M) wide and extendable to 64 ft (19.5M). It weighs over 18,000 lbs (8,165 kg) but remains smooth enough to be manually operated in 17 continuous sections. This is used on machinery used to tool castings for large electric generators.
