GIANT SHIELD: a gigantic protective wall characterised by its dimensions beyond normal standards, which is suited for huge machine tools where large parts are machined.
The 0,3 mm thick laminations represent the rigid part of the cover, a protective barrier against incandescent chips escaping during the machining of work pieces. GIANT SHIELD can be built up to a height of 6000 mm. The special properties of its laminations allow for a dynamic movement with elasticity, rigidity and ease. The bellow behind the laminations is thermally welded along its entire height and made of special fabric, all of which prevents the coolant from permeating.
The steel laminations on their own would not have been able to guarantee such impermeability. GIANT SHIELD follows each transverse movement of the machine head.
