Sheet Metal Coiling in Steel Processing
⭕ Click on the flashing circles below to learn more about safeguarding a sheet metal coiling machine and how our push button control devices may benefit you!
✅ In this coiling machine application, there are a number of ways in which Fortress products can improve upon personnel safety, line productivity and installation costs.
🔎 Our RFID access system can be used to manage access to control panel systems based on permission levels, whilst also collecting data on all instances of machine access and any resulting downtime. This means that not only can you make sure that only authorised personnel can enter the safeguarded space, but you are also able to monitor and improve upon productivity based on the data provided.

🔑 As with all of our heavy duty products, I/O control modules can be fully customised to your requirements and can include personnel safety keys to act as a proactive inhibit function. This is especially important in a sheet metal coiling machine application due to the poor visibility into the safeguarded area, allowing personnel to take control of their own safety and prevent injury from unexpected restart.
🔌 Do you have custom built I/O cabinets with lengthy installation times and high costs? Fortress’ distributed I/O modules completely replace the need for manually built I/O and panel real estate and can be configured with EtherNet/IP or PROFINET protocols, making installation easy at a reduced cost.
