Telescopic covers

Perfect protection for guideways on machine tools

Wherever guideways on machines have to be protected, we have a suitable solution. Our guideway protections systems boast a high degree of operational reliability, a long service life, and make use of innovative technical solutions.

The speed is decisive
At speeds below 15 m/min a telescopic cover can still be built in the conventional form of box synchronization. At high running speeds the inevitable impact pulses lead to vibrations and clearly audible impact noise. So-called differential drives serve to synchronize the boxes and eliminate impact pulses. KABELSCHLEPP has decided on the tried and proven harness mechanism principle for which special materials are used.

Link apron covers

Solutions for limited

Link apron covers can be used anywhere where, for reasons of space, it is not possible to use telescopic covers. They lie directly on the guideways and can hang down freely at the end of the path, or be screwed on or wound around without any special guides.


  • Small space requirement
  • Protection against chips and lubricant
  • Splash- and hose-proof
  • Low weight
  • Long service life
  • Heat-resistant to 100 °C over extended periods

Way wiper types BA and BAS

The cleanup crew

Way wipers are essential to keep the guideways in a proper functional state, and thus to keep the machine tool permanently in operation. Even if the guideways are already protected by a telescopic cover, it is necessary to wipe fine, penetrating particles off of the vulnerable ways.


  • Temperature range - 40 °C to + 100 °C
  • Support material: Aluminum
  • Wiper lip material: Polyurethane
  • Largely resistant to oils, greases, alkalis and water
  • Pretension approx. 2 mm
  • Replaceable wiper lip
  • Standard length of bar material: 1000 mm

Conical spring covers

Protection under extreme conditions

Conical spring covers protect spindles, columns, shafts, threads and rod guides reliably against contamination, chips and mechanical damage. They provide a good sealing function, and are self-cleaning if installed in a suitable position. High temperature resistance and resistance to chemicals guarantee reliable protection even under extreme operating conditions.


  • Accident prevention for operating personnel from revolving spindles and shafts
  • Reduction in downtimes resulting from contamination
  • Wiper lip material: Polyurethane
  • Increased machine service life
  • Some conical spring covers are also available for retrofitting


Guideway protection solutions with very little compression

KABELSCHLEPP bellows are used on all kinds of machine to provide protection for guideways and spindles, in those cases where no hot chips are present and accessibility is not a requirement.

Bellows can be individually produced from a range of different materials, depending on your specific requirements.


  • Simple installation
  • High travel speed
  • Minimal compression
  • High quality

Roll-up covers

Protection in a minimum of space

KABELSCHLEPP roll-up covers serve to protect contact surfaces and guideways on all kinds of machine.


  • For high travel speeds
  • Minimal space required
  • Customized production
  • Simple installation
  • Long service life
  • Cost-effective
