Safety Application Example

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.

Light Screen:
MICRO-SCREEN system with three 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.
