Toothbrush maker protects products with enclosure made from aluminium profile

A toothbrush manufacturer has used MK Profile Systems’ 40 series profile to create a protective device guard for its packaging area. The toothbrushes were already in their primary packaging, so there were no sanitary requirements but the protective guard is located in a typical cleanroom.

The guard, which was all made from the MK 40 series profile, was made entirely to the bespoke specifications of the customer. The profiles were anodised, the cut edges are blank and closed with sealing caps. The profile slots are closed with sealing strips. An MK ZRF-P timing belt conveyor was also incorporated into the protective guard. It was crucial to ensure that the enclosure allowed easy access to the interior to allow for maintenance work to be carried out. This was done by incorporating two maintenance doors also out of the 40 series profile, with a locking mechanism for the doors being provided by the customer.

Different panelling made from powder-coated sheets, Makrolon and powder-coated perforated sheets were used, again as per the customer’s requirements. Finally, the enclosure was mounted on levelling feet, which can easily compensate for uneven floors. The customer now has a perfectly tailored solution to its guarding requirements with integrated conveyor technology,.

MK Profile Systems offers over 250 different profiles across 25mm, 40mm, 50mm and 60mm ranges. Its extensive conveyor range covers over 20 standard conveyor systems for all types of goods in nearly all factory environments. The modular nature of the MK system means that all elements work in conjunction with each and can easily be adapted or added to at a later date.
