Two new safety systems are now available from Roto-Die. The systems are compatible with all Roto-Die machines and are shipped with everything needed for installation. Safety system features include a new main control panel with lockout/tag-out requirements, push-button operation and a front fixed guard. They also come with new piping, high-pressure fitting and installation hardware. The Model RD-SS-FLT uses a fixed light curtain mounted to the upper die. If any obstruction breaks the beam of light during operation, the upper die stops and reverses its motion. The Model RD-SS-FLN offers a selector switch that allows the operator to choose between flat and flanged bending. To operate the system, the operator must step off a safety mat and use the foot pedal. If anyone steps on the safety mat during operation, the system stops and reverses its motion.
