FlexLink is expanding its product portfolio introducing a 40mm aluminum profile system. This system, called TC40, incorporates the necessary components required to easily design and build machine enclosures and safety guards. TC40 is available in FlexLink’s engineering tools – from the Design Tool to the Online Store – that saves valuable time regarding both design and ordering.
FlexLink’s new profile system TC40 enables quick and easy design and construction of flexible and modular machine enclosures and protection fences. With an attractive and modern design, it very much adds to the value of machines and/or production lines.
It can be supplied as components, in pre-assembled form or as ready-to-install units which facilitates a quick installation process. The system’s aluminium profiles and connectors together with a wide variety of accessories allow for tailor-made solutions for a range of different applications.
“FlexLink’s TC40 product features include anodized aluminum profiles that are both scratch-proof and resistant to different factory conditions and chemicals. The system also boasts a uniform edge radius of 1 mm enabling smooth, seamless connections and easy cleaning - allowing you to effectively comply with safety standards and regulations”, says Viktor Hermanson, Marketing Manager at FlexLink.
Tools for easier engineering
Machine enclosures and safety guards can be easily designed in the FlexLink Design Tool. With its built-in intelligence to help avoid errors, it saves valuable time for both design and mechanical engineers. The software tool also exports to STEP and SAT files allowing quick integration into the general machine or line drawing.
With the export feature of the bill of material (BoM), including all necessary machining, ordering is completed quick and easy. Intuitiv assembly drawings that enable fast and trouble free installation can be easily prepared as well. BoM is imported into FlexLink’s e-commerce site, the Online Store - where you find CAD blocks for the most common CAD types for nearly all of FlexLink’s components. The full use of FlexLink’s engineering tools is a real time saver.
FlexLink offers a full life-cycle approach to safety engineering for its customers. With its team of experts always at hand, FlexLink can assist in aspects ranging from risk assessment, functional requirements and application design – all the way to installation and maintenance. Whatever the need, FlexLink’s philosophy is to deliver a safe solution that can be adapted to changing circumstances as well as new regulations.
