Miller Edge Area Guarding for Plant Machinery

 

Miller Edge Area Guarding for Plant Machinery

Manufacturing plants often include areas surrounding machinery that pose a hazard or threat to personnel or equipment. In an ideal situation, the hazard would be totally eliminated and all risk would be avoided, however that is not always possible.

We provide products that help reduce risks associated with areas surrounding machinery.

Safety Mats for Area Guarding

Guardian Mat may be used for area guarding surrounding industrial robots and other automated plant equipment.

This presence-sensing mat operates on the principle of a basic normally open switch. When a specified weight is applied to the mat, the inner flexible contact elements touch and “close” the switch. Typically these mats are wired to the emergency motor controls to signal the equipment to stop. ME151 Guardian Mats may be wired in series to create a continuous sensitized area. Beveled aluminum trim retainers are used to secure the mat to the floor.

Fail Safe Wiring

Optional controllers are used for monitoring the safety inputs from the mat. If the wiring is cut or there is a fault
in the mat system, a signal is sent to the motor controls to
stop operation.

Where are Guardian Mats Used:

Guardian mats can be found in automated manufacturing facilities in various industries including: aerospace, automotive, packaging and textiles.

They are used for area guarding around various types of automated equipment including: Robots, presses, material handling and theatrical stages.

Custom Sizes, shapes and sensitivity

Our mats are custom manufactured to your exact specifications for size and shape. Additionally, sensitivity may be specified at time of manufacture.

Plant safety requirements are varied so we invite you to contact us to discuss your specific needs.
