Stainless-steel sliding plate cover

Gorplate stainless-steel protective covers provide an additional level of protection not available with conventional fabric bellows. The stainless-steel plates and monofilament connections protect linear rails, ways, and machine elements from damage. The unidirectional monofilament plate connection provides uniform plate expansion in a low profile design.

Cover depth is approximately 1 in. with the capability of cover widths as narrow at 7 in. The system can be used horizontally or vertically, and is an alternative to sliding-plate systems that are prone to locking. Benefits of the system include resistance to heavy chip load and weld splatter, and excellent extended to retracted ratios.
