Guarding with conventional methods (light curtain, restraints, barriers) is frequently a barrier to productivity.
But the innovative LazerSafe system protects the operator with minimal decrease in productivity.
LazerSafe accomplishes this by using a lazer beam parallel to the tip of the punch. If this precise lazer beam is interrupted motion is immediately stopped. If this lazer beam is not disrupted during a normal safe approach the bending cycle is not delayed.
The LazerSafe system is constantly monitoring critical press brake functions (motion, velocity, stopping distance). Because of this closed loop monitoring circuit, the LazerSafe does not require the 'oversize safety zone' common to other press brake safety systems.
