A manufacturer of office supplies is looking to retrofit its outdated production line for cardboard folders. It wants to completely overhaul the system – in terms of both technology and appearance. Protective housings are therefore required for the four processing stations (cutting, sticking, transfer and packing). Access to each of the machine sections is to be provided by sliding and swing doors.
Individual housings for the four machine sections were constructed from series 40 profiles and neatly connected using tension plugs. Large door and window elements were integrated to provide access to the machine and operating elements within. Depending on the space required, entire cabin walls can be opened out with two leaves or moved as a sliding door in a track (mk 2245 profile). They are secured using magnetic locking devices.
Polycarbonate panelling is used to fill the frames. Both these and the customer’s steel machine panels were secured with B34.01.004 holders. Cantilevers for tracks were also integrated to enable the suspension of a button. The protective housings were supplied as pre-assembled modules.
