Telescopic steel covers from HEMA

Telescopic steel covers from HEMA

Telescopic covers are among the classic machine protection systems: They prevent the penetration of chips or sharp-edged elements into the guideways of machine tools or machining centers.

Our GLADIATOR Telescopic Steel Covers

We supply this box-shaped protective cover to match your machine type (horizontal, vertical, diagonal or transverse). The standard design is sufficient for most applications up to a guideway width of 900 mm - but of course individual sizes up to a width of five meters and an extension length of 15 meters are possible. Depending on the speed of use of the protective cover we equip the boxes with brass glides or castors.

The right shape for every application

Since each application is single, our GLADIATOR telescopic covers with different roof shapes are available:

  • Oblique shape - enables optimal drainage of liquids
  • Simple edging - This construction increases the lateral stability and is well suited for larger box widths
  • Double edging - Provides even greater lateral stability and is particularly well suited for larger box widths

Your advantages with telescopic covers

Good cushioning

Sliding and buffering systems between drive plates, scrapers and catching strips reduce shock, noise and friction.

Good protection

The telescopic covers, in combination with guideway wipers, reliably keep chips and debris away from the shafts and guideways of your machine.

Practical options

The largest segment of our telescopic covers can be made walkable and equipped with an access window. This makes maintenance and repair work much easier.

Individual design

The telescopic steel covers are matched to the speed of use. Rollers, skids and buffer systems are individually selected to sustainably and permanently reduce shock, noise and friction.


Scrapers keep guideways free of shavings, dirt and deposits. HEMA offers you a range of models with different characteristics.

Wiper type L

This wiper type is produced as an insert with a lip of natural rubber. This lip possess's excellent mechanical qualities and a high resistance to abrasion. The material is resistant to mineral oils, coolants, and micro-organisms.

Wiper type S

These wipers are equipped with a special two-sided lip, providing rear sealing to coolant.Its outer support of nickel chromium steel offers high rigidity and stability under load.

Wiper type P01/P02/P03

Wipers of these types can be used universally. They can be used horizontally for telescopic steel covers or vertically for guideway wipers. A polyurethane wiper lip is vulcanised onto one or two steel profiles and thus permanently bonded. An additional support by steel frame is available as an option. When worn, the complete wiper must be replaced.

Wiper Type DSP/DV/LP

Wiper lips of these types can be replaced when worn. The service should be done by professional service personnel. They are fixed by spot welding. These wipers are compatible with many systems common in the marketplace. The metal profiles are produced from stainless steel.
