New safety guarding for more flexibility and safety
| Subj: Machinery
With its newly developed EN ISO 14120-compliant safety guarding, ENGEL offers a significant safety boost. In addition to this, the modular solution enables particularly easy configuration and installation. ENGEL is presenting the new development at Fakuma 2018 from 16th to 20th October in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
EN ISO 14120 “Safety of machinery — Guards — General requirements for the design and construction of fixed and movable guards” places even higher demands on the strength of protective guards than its predecessor EN 953. Above all, the external load capacity is defined in concrete terms. In the pendulum test, the safety guarding must withstand a 90 kilogram sandbag.
Modular and highly flexible
Easier to maintain
The new TÜV-approved safety guarding is offered as standard for both stand-alone injection moulding machines with a conveyor belt and integrated and automated production cells. It is consistently styled in the continuous and functional ENGEL design and is very easy to clean. In combination with an options package, the new safety guarding also meets requirements for clean room production.
