DBI Control has ventured into the area of Light Guarding – electro-sensitive protective equipment that detects when a person or object crosses into the hazardous area, which will break the infrared beam and send a stop signal to the machine to stop it running immediately.
DBI Control specifically deal with with SICKs Light Guarding technology, as it is the most innovative, highest quality and overall best equipment available on the market.
SICK Light Guards follow the traffic light system that many companies are beginning to use due to it’s effectiveness – green when everything is clear and there are no hazards, and then when something crosses them it will turn to red to alert workers to stop, and will shut down the machinery.
Light Guards are highly useful safety devices which enable workers to gain high accessibility to machinery without the risk of danger.
They additionally lead to improved efficiency, reduction of operator fatigue during the production process and practically update the safety of a workplace. They are flexible, cost effective and reliable and can range from compact size to robust, to cover any requirements a company may have.
Safeguarding the personnel in the vicinity of moving machinery with the potential to harm is vital in the industrial industry, especially when using presses, winders, palletisers, conveyors, etc. Light Guarding is a modern alternative to mechanical guarding and barriers, and reduces the need for physical guards.
