Stop Time Testing

By | October 20th, 2016|Power Press|

  For ALL your Power Press Requirements When did you last Inspect your Safety Light Curtains? Machinery must stop in the time it takes a person to break a light beam and reach the hazard. Over time friction clutch/brakes can wear and become less effective therefore safety devices will be in-effective if the distance to the hazard is too short and the person can reach the danger point before the hazard can be controlled. BS EN ISO 13855 is an International Standard which establishes the positioning of safeguards with respect to the approach speeds of [...]
