SAMURAI FASTLAP lamella aprons are a variation of the SAMURAI bellows. They were designed for Z axis covers in machining centres.
The substructure does not consist of ELASTIC bellows but only a carrier material to which the lamellas are fixed. These cover types are called FASTLAP, and the product line consists of three models. They vary according to how their lamellas are fixed to the carrier material:
- FASTLAP SA
- FASTLAP SB
The SAMURAI FASTLAP SA lamella apron is fitted with flexible mounted lamellas, lamellas clipped or secured with/without preloading. The lamella apron is secured to a tear-proof Nylon-PU material selected specifically for each application.
The SAMURAI FASTLAP SA lamella apron is also fitted with flexible mounted lamellas. These hinged without preloading. The lamellas are made
of stainless steel.
The FASTLAP SA type exhibits a greater lateral stability, especially for widths in excess of 1,000 mm, when compared with the standard FASTLAP type. Therefore this type is suitable for higher travelling speeds. The higher surface pressure also effectively prevents the lamellas from »lifting off«.
Compared with FASTLAP SA this type exhibits a higher lateral stability, which becomes particularly necessary on widths greater than 1000 mm. At the machine there must be guides on both sides of the lamella apron over a side length of 25 mm.
The lamellas are made of stainless steel of 0.5 mm thickness up to a maximum width of 4,000 mm, and mounting is simple.
