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.
All SICURTEC® product lines in the flied of machine safety windows can be freely combined with each other and equipped with other suitable products, such as frame systems and spin windows. Special solutions are also possible.
SICURTEC® stands for worldwide
security with 360° service
Because every advantage counts
Advantages exist, to being used. Because in the hard competition for customers an market shares every aspect of use counts. With this in mind, SICURTEC® invites you to use the following advantages of SICURTEC® machine safety windows as strong sales arguments for your machines.
- Effective protection of employees, inventory and companies
- Clear view of manufacturing processes
- Highest possible resistance to chemical influences
- Symmetrical and asymmetrical structures possible
- Can be equipped with additional options, frame systems and spin windows
- Combinable with all SICURTEC® products
- Multifunctionality through additional options
- Individual solutions on customer request and special sizes on customer request
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
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.
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.
