Safeguarding entry and exit of automated sheet metal transport during logistics

Safeguarding the warehouse entry and exit points for automated transporters is essential in order to ensure a plant’s perfect safety record. Humans should not enter areas where automated vehicles operate without devices to secure a safe, controlled stop of a loaded vehicle. A horizontally mounted safety light curtain such as the C4000 Fusion, ensures the automated vehicle will safely brake when an obstacle presents itself.
