SCHMIDT® Single workstations
– Safety concepts
Two-hand and automatic operation can be carried out using the press
control unit SCHMIDT® Press Control 600.
SCHMIDT® single workstations are EC type-approved. Safety
devices including pneumatic system exist twice in all models.
Two-hand safety switches
In basic design, SCHMIDT® Pneumatic Press
and Hydro Pneumatic Press are operated with
two- hand safety switches. The user must keep both
switches in release position. If one switch is released ahead of
time, the press stroke is interrupted. This applies to all positions
above the automatic stroke takeover that is started from the pinch-point
to finish. From the stroke takeover, the stroke is continued automatically.
Light curtain with transparent protective
The light curtain control provides optimum safety to the
user. The danger area is protected with Lexan windows. A light curtain
protects the access to the danger area on the side of insertion.
The working process is immediately interrupted and the press is
stopped when intervening. The cycle can be continued automatically
after leaving the danger area. In combination with SCHMIDT® Servo Press,
the light curtain control is standard. The press can be activated
via the light curtain. Depending on the application, it can be selected
between 1-cycle and 2-cycle activation.
Transparent protective housing with pneumatic
The version with a pneumatically operated safety door is completely
protected with Lexan windows. First, the safety door is closed and
locked via hand or foot switch. This is two-channel monitored. As
soon as the door is locked, the press process is automatically started.
