Rolling Mills & Metal Forming
Safe access to rolling mills doesn't stop at the point of entry. Safeguarding systems should consider access control and the prevention of unexpected restart to protect operators entering a hazardous space. Click below to see what measures can be implemented to prevent unexpected restart during whole body access.
Have you ever questioned the necessity of I/O elements when designing a control system due to the burden on installation time, resources and cost? High-density I/O doesn't have to be a burden for machine builders or wallets. Read our application below to find out more about our custom design high density I/O solutions.
Cold Rolling Mills & Metal Working
Similar to hot rolling mills, safe access to cold rolling mills doesn't stop at the point of entry. Safeguarding systems should consider access control and the prevention of unexpected restart to protect operators entering a hazardous space. Click below to see what measures can be implemented to prevent unexpected restart during whole body access.
Sheet Metal Cutting - Shearing
Access to safeguarded spaces should be quick and convenient. Integrating custom control I/O into your gate access solution is what we do from request to enter, to emergency stops, to status indication. Read our application below to learn more about our solutions and what we can offer.
Permission Based Access to Enclosed Spaces
In metal manufacturing, often the question of 'is it safe to enter', may better be phrased as 'is it safe to enter for this individual'. When it comes to hazardous spaces, ensuring the right person is performing the right job is critical. Access control and the digital permit to work can help these locations control exactly 'who' has access to these spaces, preventing untrained personnel from entering.
Transport Cranes - Danger Overhead
Are there any locations in which personnel could be undetected from the point of entry where transport cranes operate? From our experience, few applications can guarantee this. Protective measures should always be considered to protect personnel operating in these locations. Read our application guide below to learn ore.
