Key transfer system and a coordinated safety concept consisting of a protective fence and muting light curtain.
Built in the late 1980s, the foam block cutting machine was overhauled in September 2017 and optimized with a holistic safety solution from Safety System Producs.
The modular and flexible aluminum safety fence encloses the plant and thus prevents unwanted walking behind. Only the doors and the material discharge had to be safeguarded with solenoid interlocks such as the SAFIX 3 RFID safety sensor and a muting light curtain. For this purpose, amGard pro safety interlocks from Fortess Interlocks are used. Thanks to their modular and robust design, these are particularly suitable for hazardous applications (SIL3/KAT 4, PLe) and can be easily adapted to the customer's requirements. Thus, in addition to the actual guard locking function, the tumblers can also be equipped with operating elements and an escape release.
