Aug. 2, 2016 – Hennig, a supplier of machine protection systems, has developed a transport mechanism for large telescopic steel covers for speeds between 98 feet and 62 feet per minute (30 and 80 meters per minute).
According to the manufacturer, the 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.” The system is not positively driven; as a result, it doesn’t have to move the entire mass. Depending on the length of the stroke, the only boxes moved are the ones that are needed.
