Way covers are machine tool accessories which shield and protect guide ways or rails of the machine from abrasion and contamination. These guide ways facilitate the motion of a machine These ways could be linear or with a certain axis. We offer three-sided way covers that have several applications for motion control products. With the ability to work with any axis of movement, our bellows and way covers also provide excellent extend/retract ratios.
