Single Press Workstations & Safety Concepts

 

SCHMIDT® Single workstations – Safety concepts

Two-hand and automatic operation can be carried out using the press control unit SCHMIDT® Press Control 600.
SCHMIDT® single workstations
are EC type-approved. Safety devices including pneumatic system exist twice in all models.

Two-hand safety switches

In basic design, SCHMIDT® Pneumatic Press and Hydro Pneumatic Press are operated with
two- hand safety
switches. The user must keep both switches in release position. If one switch is released ahead of time, the press stroke is interrupted. This applies to all positions above the automatic stroke takeover that is started from the pinch-point to finish. From the stroke takeover, the stroke is continued automatically.

Light curtain with transparent protective housing

The light curtain control provides optimum safety to the user. The danger area is protected with Lexan windows. A light curtain protects the access to the danger area on the side of insertion. The working process is immediately interrupted and the press is stopped when intervening. The cycle can be continued automatically after leaving the danger area. In combination with SCHMIDT® Servo Press, the light curtain control is standard. The press can be activated via the light curtain. Depending on the application, it can be selected between 1-cycle and 2-cycle activation.

Transparent protective housing with pneumatic sliding door

The version with a pneumatically operated safety door is completely protected with Lexan windows. First, the safety door is closed and locked via hand or foot switch. This is two-channel monitored. As soon as the door is locked, the press process is automatically started.
