Existing Conditions

New machine design.

darlexdoorassemblylargeThe Challenge

To design and build a machine guard which incorporated automated sliding doors on the front face of the guard that were supported by aluminum extrusion — the customer requested a series of four steel posts.

The Solution

A pneumatic rodless cylinder (with profile rail and bearing) mounted to the inside of the front face of the guard used in conjunction with our standard roller guide extrusion and related slider assembly.
