How to Apply a Safety Edge to a Machine Guard — Part 2: Design Considerations

This entry is part 6 of 7 in the series Guards and Guard­ing

In Part 1 of this arti­cle, I looked at the pres­sure-sen­si­tive devices (safe­ty edges) them­selves. This part explores the design require­ments that engi­neers and tech­nol­o­gists need to con­sid­er when apply­ing these devices.

How to Apply a Safety Edge to a Machine Guard — Part 1: Pressure-sensitive devices

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series Guards and Guard­ing

Safe­ty Edges are often for­got­ten as safe­guard­ing devices. Most machin­ery engi­neers and design­ers are famil­iar with inter­lock­ing devices and light cur­tains, but once we step away from the famil­iar, our under­stand­ing of how to apply safe­guard­ing devices like a safe­ty edge becomes a bit fog­gy.  Con­tin­ue read­ing “How to Apply a Safe­ty Edge to a Machine Guard — Part 1: Pres­sure-sen­si­tive devices”
