Industrial-Press Operators Can Be Safeguarded Without Compromising Productivity By Using Extra-Slim Type 4 Light Curtains


Heavy-duty industrial presses can cause serious injury without adequate safety precautions. The use of safety light-curtains (AOPDs) for hand protection allows unobstructed access without increasing the operating cycle-time. YBES Extended Slim Type 4 light-curtains are unobtrusive and maximize the available obstruction-free working area; open-fronted presses are now the norm. Wireless configuration and monitoring via Bluetooth® and ContriApp reduces changeover time and cost.
