An Overview of Three-sided Way Covers

Today, most labor-intensive tasks across industries are automated. They are performed using various types of machines. Although these machines are designed for challenging environments some of these linear machines and guides cannot sustain contamination, high temperature, dirt, and dust. This is where protective way covers can work. These way covers are distinguished based on their designs. There are two types of way covers – bellows type way covers and telescopic type way covers. Of these, bellows type way covers are used to protect certain parts fully or partially. However, telescopic way covers are used to protect them fully. The way covers are generally distinguished by their design. Three-sided way covers are the most common types of way covers used across industries. What makes them unique? How are they built? This post discusses these way covers in detail and aims to answer many of the questions that you may have in mind regarding them.
