Safe material lock for standard palletizing tasks

Loaded pallets are wrapped in film automatically. Even in a confined space, personnel still need safe access to the hazardous area of the machine in order to perform maintenance. A vertically mounted S300 safety laser scanner provides access protection. Muting sensors distinguish between whether it is a person or material that is approaching the lock. Therefore, pallets pass the protective field unimpeded, while if a person enters that area, the machine stops safely. Flexible protective field switching can be realized in the safety laser scanner or together with a Flexi Soft safety controller.
