Safety Application Example

Machine Press Guarding Example B

Point-of-operation guarding of the opening to a high-tonnage press.

Additional guarding is required on the rear of the press and all other safety hazard areas.

Installing simply a vertical light curtain to meet setback requirements would create a space between the vertical light curtain and the press which would be wide enough for an operator to stand inside and undetected by the vertical light screen. However, by installing an additional short horizontal light screen to guard the space between the vertical light screen and the front of the press, screening and setback are achieved.

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 factorys 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.
