Protective windows for machine tools are highly developed components.
The protective window offers two main performances.
First of all it is designed to protect the workers from ejected machined parts (retaining performance) and secondly the protective window, especially in combination with a spin window, provides full visibility and transparency during the manufacturing process (visibility performance).
The industrial statistics show, that workers are still injured by flying machined parts ejected while processing, so therefore it is essential to take care to obtain the right window!
