Structural options

Dimensioning of flanges

The height (h) of the centred flange can be the same as the compressed dimension (Zd) of the spiral minus 2mm. However, it must be at least 2/3 of the compressed dimension.

Installation directions for WMB spirals

Vertical installation

Standard installation of the WMB spiral: Always larger end up

Installation with the smaller end up is possible, but only after a separate consultation

Horizontal installation

The maximum elongation is reduced to 2/3 of that of vertical installation. This ensures optimal hardware performance

The larger end can be mounted left or right as required.

Depending on the model, the deflection of the WMB spiral is 1–3% of the maximum elongation.

Installation directions for WMB spirals

Two WMB coils can be installed end to end, if necessary. In such cases, please contact our technical support team.

Frequently asked questions

Maxjas Oy supplies way and bellows covers, chip conveyors and way lubrication equipment, machine guards, cable channels and other accessories for machine tools. We offer extensive maintenance services for way covers for machine tools and comprehensive life cycle services for our way covers.

At the latest, way covers should be serviced when they become visibly worn, dented or damaged. However, maintenance is best done pre-emptively, which is why Maxjas recommends regular, annual maintenance for way covers. By following that approach, the covers will last longer and production is shielded from unexpected shutdowns. 

If you do not know whether your way covers require maintenance or not, you can arrange for Maxjas to evaluate the condition and remaining lifetime of the covers free of charge.

In terms of maintenance of way covers, we replace section wipers, smooth section surfaces, replace any worn or damaged slides, bearings, brass and other parts. Each repaired cover is tested before return to the customer. Before each maintenance service, the client is given a cost estimate and details of the work to be done. On request, we can also carry out installation after maintenance.

We can procure way covers for any machine. We can take the measurements from the old cover and provide a new one quickly and at a competitive price.

Our life cycle service helps companies to get a better understanding of maintenance as a whole and to be prepared for the next step in maintaining their way covers. With our life cycle service, we identify and classify the way covers sent to us according to their condition. When the cover’s next estimated maintenance date is due, we already know what work needs to be carried out. 

This enables us to accurately monitor the development of the way cover’s condition and provide a new cover for our client in time, before the way cover reaches the end of its life. This in turn creates continuous savings for our clients and prevents unnecessary production downtime.
