ISB / MERLIN makes a big splash at the Fabtech Canada 2022 Trade Show.    

ISB / MERLIN, located in Montreal Canada, has been a leading manufacturer of press & press brake guarding safety systems since the early 1970’s and is proud to be celebrating 50 years in business.   Even though ISB has been designing and manufacturing its own brand of safety lights in Canada from the very beginning, the recent product development of its MX4200 and Merlin 4000 Press Brake Guarding System that carry CE / TUV Certifications for world-wide use is essentially a product relaunch, especially for those outside of the U.S. market, where 3rd party certification and system start-up approvals are required.  According to one participant, the excitement around the latest products has the feelings of a “coming out party” for ISB that will launch the company in to its next 50 years!

This year, the ISB / MERLIN booth’s main focus was on our new MERLIN 4000 Press Brake Guarding System.   A link to the brochure can be found here;

Professional videos played continuously on our big screen.  We also played a slide show of numerous successful installations.  You can find the links below;

The introductory Merlin 4000 Press Brake safety system video can be found here:

We also played a short video on how to program a part with side flanges when using the MERLIN 4000.

The ISB MX4200 Type 4 Safety Light curtains are the “eyes” of the Merlin 4ooo Press Brake Guarding System.   They are also used for our general-purpose safety light curtain applications and contain beam blanking, floating beam, muting, etc.  A link to the Type 4 Safety Light brochure can be found here;

In order to properly safeguard machinery, other support hardware, mounting brackets, dual safety valves, etc. are required to get the job done.  Please see the link to ISB’s Product line card;

All Literature, manuals, wiring diagrams, etc. can be downloaded on the ISB Web Site;   While you are on our website, don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter, so that you can stay informed of the latest information.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next trade show;  FABTECH 2022, Atlanta Georgia.  Save the date!  November 8-10, 2022.
