microFIN - The modular finned cover.



microFIN: micro refers to the extremely small compression size and FIN stands for fin (lamella).

The function and reliability of microFIN® finned covers have been successfully proven in long-term tests by renowned machine tool manufacturers.

Features and Benefits:

  • Application frontal, vertical, horizontal (e.g. as movable roof cover)
  • High-quality stainless steel fins
  • Cost-effective and short delivery time
  • Extremely small compressed lenght
  • Smooth extension, no impact noises
  • With coating particularly quiet
  • Resistant to chips and welding splatter
  • Suitable for high travel speeds
  • Acceleration up to 2.5g
  • Delivery complete with guides. Ready to screw on!

MicroFIN machine cover (patented) has a unique ratio of extention to compression. This is due to the fact that the spring elements engage directly into the fins due to a special geometry. This means that a compression of only 2.4mm (!) per lamella can be achieved. The machine stroke can thus be considerably increased compared to conventional covers.

A patented coating underneath each lamella prevents scratches on the surface of the lamellas and increases lifetime up to 70%. In addition, a higher tightness against cooling lubricants and chips is achieved. At present we can do the coating up to a lamella length of 1.500mm (optional).

If one or more lamellas have to be replaced - e.g. in case of damage - they can be removed from the cover corpus without dismantling the entire cover. This is achieved by means of a plug-in connection between corpus and protective lamella. Damaged lamellas can thus be quickly and inexpensively replaced from the work area.

If the cover must be 100% tight - e.g. when using coolant - we can optionally attach a fabric to the back of the fins due to the modular design of the microFIN cover. This only slightly increases the compressed length.

We stand for protection and safety for man and machine
