    Development and construction of the plastic covers

    Before tool making, all cover parts were produced as prototypes in original size, and presented to the customer as different colour and surface versions.

    The 4 lateral column claddings were “placed” on only one Twin-Sheet tool. The approx. 2.80 m high components can thus be produced in one single forming step as a set. All parts are equipped with fastening solutions at the same time. The hinges are directly screwed to these for easy machine access.

    Hombach also produces the associated control panel fully using the Twin-Sheet procedure. This renders the control panel extremely lightweight but rigid at the same time, with a low centre of gravity due the foot pedal. At the same time, the complete cable routing is invisible through the side rails.

    All components are painted in-house in multiple colours
