Lead Form & Trim Guarding
Point-of-operation guarding of a small
machine designed for precision forming and trimming of gull-wing leads.
Both the emitter and the receiver are mounted to one
MSA stand at a 90°
angle from one another. The safety light screen provides guarding of the machine
around a 360° perimeter through use of mirrors on the remaining three corners.
This type of application allows easy access to all sides of the machine while
preventing dangerous machine motion whenever the light screen is interrupted. In
addition, wiring is simplified due to the close proximity of the emitter,
receiver, and controller.
All four sides of the small machine are guarded with one light screen.
