Safety & Protective Measures
The safety equipment corresponds to the current local guidelines
The laser cutting system, machine and CNC controller are equipped with safety devices. These switches and sensors protect the operator from hazards and counteract damage to the system. For example, incorrect path measurement programming or collision between the work piece and the machine. A diagnosis system keeps the operator informed about the current status of the system and allows him to intervene in the dialogue to make corrections that remedy these faults. The steps required for the solution appear as plain text on the controller screen.
The working area of the machine is guarded light guards. These guards can be interrupted to gain free access to insert a new sheet, lens and nozzle replacement, general maintenance and for other special purposes. During the laser cutting operation the safety devices are electromagnetically locked in order to prevent an accidental triggering of the machine’s EMERGENCY STOP function. The machine’s safety equipment corresponds to the local guidelines currently in force. The laser head is guarded along the Y axis by flexiglass material which allows clear vision of the cutting area.
