Dynamic hazardous point protection at the sliding table

Because the sliding table performs dangerous movements, the hazardous area around the table must be safeguarded. This is achieved using the Flexi Soft safety controller in combination with S3000 safety laser scanners. Protective and warning fields are configured according to the dangerous movement. This means that, as long as there are no dangerous situations present, the table can be freely accessed in order to remove parts. If the table has a servo-electric drive, the safe position and safe standstill data for the table can also be determined using the MOC motion control module of the Flexi Soft safety controller.

Please note: A special prototype test for fulfilling the machine-specific safety concept is required for this application. It is not possible to adopt the application directly without special testing. SICK will be happy to support you in developing appropriate safety concepts for your machine, so that they comply with the appropriate safety requirements and standards.
