Safety Application Example

Tube Former Guarding

Perimeter guarding of a tube-bending machine.

After the light screen is interrupted, the tube-bending machine can not be allowed to operate until the defined area is cleared of all personnel. A latch/reset function can be created by taking the safety outputs of the light curtain into an Emergency Stop Monitoring Safety Relay. The reset for the light screen latch must be positioned so that the operator has a full view of the guarded area. Where a clear view is not possible, supplemental guarding (e.g., safety mats) must be used for personnel detection inside the guarded area.

Three sides are guarded with a light screen and one side is guarded with hard guarding

Light Screen:
MICRO-SCREEN system with an ES-_A-5B Emergency Stop Monitoring Safety Relay, two MSM Series corner mirrors, and four MSA Series stands


This application example depicts only generalized guarding and should not be automatically treated as a solution for any particular situation. Every guarding application has a unique set of safety requirements which must be carefully examined. Extreme care is urged to ensure that all safety and legal requirements are met and that all installation instructions are followed.
In addition, any questions regarding safeguarding should be directed to the factory’s own Safety Department or Safety Officer. No responsibility will be taken for use of these examples which are only guidelines to the types of equipment available.
