Machine Cover System

A number of uniformly designed segments are connected to each other either rigidly or by hinges or detachable seals, using equally uniformly designed joint elements.

The housing concept of Fig. 1 for a machine with an angular structure is made up of a plurality of flat housing segments 1, segments 2 bent inside at right angles, and segments 3 bent outside at right angles.

According to Figs. 2, 2A, 2B and 2C, all vertical segment edges are bent to have a uniform profile 4. Rigid connection between two elements is obtained by cover joint element 5 cFig. 2A& which is permanently connected to both segments.

Cover sealing element pair 6 and 6a of Fig. 2B serves to detachably link the segments, so that one of them can be opened toward the outside (or the other toward the inside), either in conjunction with a 90 degrees aperture angle hinge or to connect outer edge of a pivotable segment and the adjoining edge of the neighboring nonpivotable segment.

Cover turning elements 7, 7a and 7b of Fig. 2C are used to hinge link two segments at a turning angle of 180 degrees.
