Safeguard detector solves safety problem for machinery

160729 SickAn automated safety solution to solve a common problem on packaging machines has been developed by industrial safety specialist SICK. The Safeguard Detector Core protects operators from being injured if they reach in to refill an empty or nearly empty carton magazine while the machine is still running. The SICK Safeguard Detector is easy to retrofit into existing machinery and simple for machine developers to incorporate into new designs. By combining photoelectric sensors and the SICK Flexi Soft, it provides quick-fit certified protection to PLd (EN ISO 13849) for printing, packaging and carton machinery with flat sheet feeding. Two SICK MultiPulse, MultiTask photoelectric sensors are mounted easily on the side of the machine to monitor the amount of material in the magazine.   The sensors’ compact and rugged housing means they can be fitted into a small space and their excellent background and foreground suppression guards against the possibility of false signals. The Safeguard Detector will detect sheets and cartons with a wide range of colours and can accommodate carton changes. It has a detection range of between 30mm and 100mm.
