Machine Safety Guarding – Customised Modular Guarding

Guarding machinery is seldom straight forward and in this case a combination of machine specific and modular guarding was used to protect workers from product and machinery on a metal forming line. Some of the techniques used to eliminate hazards included:

  • Overlapping panels to eliminate shear hazards.
  • Light curtains where operator contact is required and dual circuit monitored pneumatic isolation valves.
  • Interlocked hatch covers where operator access is required.
  • Custom stainless steel guarding.
