For the machine manufacturer ficon TEC Service GmbH häwa has developed two for the company standardized X-frame cells. They can be ordered by ficon TEC optionally from stainless steel (V2A) for the often demanded application in clean rooms or in powder-coated sheet steel. The sheet steel as well as the stainless steel version of the cells are both based on the same drawing set and are therefore very cost-efficient in production. Additional construction working is no more necessary. For the precisely working machines of ficon TEC it is very important that the working platform stands stable and with the least amount of vibration possible. The enclosure has to be able to take in various axis systems and also be extensible or adjustable corresponding user requirements, without the need to think about new constructions including new designs each time. For these high requirements placed on stability, modularity, extensibility and nevertheless given individuality, the X-frame machine frames from häwa.
Advantages of X-frame in comparison to fixed aluminum frames
X-frame from häwa offers a far higher stability as machine frames with aluminum profile. As described before the X-frame operational framework is not only a skeleton. Thanks to its large cross-section the interior room of the struts offers the possibility of the protected installation of hoses, lines, cables, maintenance units, valve terminal, 19” modules and many more components in the frame. A retroactive laying of cables and other means is with the X-frame possible without any problems at any time. Also light curtains can be installed quickly and easily in the corner struts. Furthermore, all components are very well protected inside the frame.
