Safety windows for machine tools

Machine safety windows - Safety windows
for machine tools
Description

Safety in sight

On the one hand, viewing windows for lathes, milling machines and other machine tools prevent workpieces and fragments from being thrown out of the working area of the machine. Thus, they protect the user from injuries. On the other hand, they allow a clear view of the manufacturing process. So the theory. In practice, safety glass only fulfills this task optimally, if it reliably withstands extreme stresses and convinces with maximum transparency. Which brings us to SICURTEC® machine safety windows.

Because when it comes to safety in the production process, SICURTEC® products make no compromises.

4 x the right decision

SICURTEC® machine safety windows are manufactured exclusively with highly developed components. The polycarbonate protective windows guarantee resistance beyond the double maximum value of the EN as well as absolute transparency. In combination with high-quality frames and spin windows, they merge into an integrated overall solution with four different variants.

SICURTEC_PURE SICURTEC_PURE
Pure polycarbonate for elementary protection
SICURTEC_PURE, made of highly-resistant and highly-elastic polycarbonate, is the basic requirement for machine safety windows for lathes, milling machines, machining centers (CNC) and grinding machines.

Standards and recommendations

With best recommendations!

A machine safety window far beyond the norm

SICURTEC® machine safety windows were developed to push the limits of puncture resistance further up. The relevant standards only serve SICURTEC® as a guide. In fact, the relevant characteristics of SICURTEC® products are in some cases far above the level set by standards.

  • EN ISO 23125 (EN 12415 lathes)
  • EN 12417 (machining centres)
  • EN 13218 (grinding centres)
  • The standard for lathes EN ISO 23125 ends at 8,000 joules, SICURTEC® builds elements that have been tested up to over 16,000 joules.

The fact is: Machine safety windows can lose their retention capacity. They become brittle. The unprotected contact with cooling lubricants and unsuitable cleaning agents speeds up the process many times over. It is therefore necessary to protect the polycarbonate. The graphic below clearly shows how this protection affects the longevity.

Window replacement every 5 years

Laminated polycarbonate safety glass, gluing in a stainless steel frame or edge protection with aluminum tape or NBR rubber profiles protect polycarbonate against rapid aging. Nevertheless, the German BIA as well as the VDW and IWF recommend to replace machine safety windows after 5 years. Pure polycarbonate windows at least every 2 years!

When to replace windows immediately:

  • Deformation (bulging) of the polycarbonate due to an impact 
  • Leaky edge seal
  • Coolant is between the various components
  • Destruction or damage to one of the window sides
Ageing of polycarbonate
Frame systems and seals

Frame systems for perfect sealing of the machine safety window

Chemical influences, such as contact with cooling lubricants, can cause considerable damage to machine safety windows. Unless, for example, the window with glass is glued into a stainless steel frame. As a all-round provider, we provide you with three standard frame profiles with L, Z and S profiles. Due to the product flexibility, all three profile types can be adapted to any pane thickness according to the desired retention effect. Same applies to frames, which are developed by us especially to customer requirements and which are produced as already glued and finished elements.

Further edge protection

Are you using an existing frame profile? No problem. The options NBR and ALU are compatible with every frame profile.

Spin windows
Spin windows provide an extra clear view of the manufacturing process. As general representative of ROTOCLEAR, SICURTEC® not only implements the high-quality spin windows in the machine safety windows, but also offers them individually. The same applies to VISIPORT products.
Cutting system

Fixed-size cuts on our
own cutting system

If one wants to be closer to the customer, one also has to be able to react quickly. SICURTEC® offers precisely this advantage with its own plate storage and the individual, electronically controlled cutting system with an integrated optimization program.

This enables us to cut our Makrolon and Lexan polycarbonate sheets to the desired dimensions quickly and precisely. You benefit from particularly short production cycles, extremely short delivery times and the option of picking them up at our plant.
