What’s In This Video: Our client, a large precision bearing manufacturer, requested a large aluminum framed enclosure to protect one of their coordinate measuring machines (CMM.) After contacting us with their ideas and specs, Alufab Inc engineers designed and created the enclosure you see in these photos below. The customer also required a parts entry door that could accommodate loading by an overhead crane. The result was a custom L-shaped rolling door that opens not only the front, but a portion of the ceiling. This allows the crane’s cables and pulleys to swing in and deliver the part to the center of the machine platform.
Because a CMM is susceptible to dust and particulate contamination, the enclosure is equipped with a HEPA filtered positive pressure blower- seen in the photos as a projection from the back wall.
The parts entry door is designed to allow loading by an overhead crane.
