Hazardous area protection with safety laser scanners

The S3000 safety laser scanner protects the hazardous area in front of a tire vulcanizing machine. Four simultaneous protective fields are available in conjunction with the Flexi Soft safety controller. This allows one safety laser scanner to monitor four hazardous areas at the same time. Thanks to the two upstream protective fields in front of a machine, the movement of the automatic handling units are stopped by the outer field and the movement of the upper part of the mold is stopped by the inner protective field. Productivity increases as a result because processes are able to run independently of one another.
