Mirror columns from SICK are used in areas in which multi-sided protection of hazardous points, such as machining centers, is required. The right solution is to combine multiple light beam safety devices or safety light curtains with mirror columns to deflect the light beam. Several sides of a machine can be protected with just one pair of sensors, which reduces wiring effort significantly. It is easy to adjust the deflector mirrors, which are mounted in stable columns. Unimpeded access for feeding operations and tool and program changes is another advantage compared to a mechanical fence and results in higher productivity.
