This category includes roof systems that serve as moveable, low-friction covers for large CNC gantry machines and other applications. Roof covers consist of large, self-supporting bellows that are equipped to glide on a rail system. Bellows folds are attached to lightweight support beams with low-friction guide blocks and bearings, and are employed to contain dust and particles, as well as to reduce noise. Roof systems are often custom-built to a specific machine or application.
