Multi-axis face shield assemblies have been developed for machining centers or any application needing simultaneous, dynamic protection for each axis of movement. Typical industrial applications are vertical (side or wall) or horizontal (ceiling or floor).
Depending upon your application, XY face shields can incorporate a number of different methods of protection for each axis: Stainless steel shade, elastomer coated belting or Steelflex® can be used in conjunction with a spring roller. Gordillo™ (bellows with steel plates) or sliding steel plates can be used instead of a shade roller. The spindle can use a custom cutout, molded wiper and/or a bellows. Multiple roll-up covers or protective sliding plates cover the two main axis, while a ram wiper or bellows can be used for a third axis.
A variety of x-axis side wipers are available:
