The Light Curtains are well protected by the custom built welded brackets. The removeable side bars will allow for feeders, chutes, or conveyors .
An MX Wiring Box was used for this installation to house the power supply and safety relay. As an alternative, the power supply and safety relay could have been DIN rail mounted inside the presses power box, but after seeing all the items inside the power box, it made more sense to use the external yellow wiring box. You can also see the teach tool mounted on the top left corner of the side guard to allow for convenient beam blank out and other programming of features.

Making it safe;  Installation of a Safety Light System on an Amada SDE 8018 Servo Press.

February 26, 2021

 A new Amada Orii SDE 8018 i3 Servo-driven Metal Stamping Press was recently delivered to a Community College in Southern California.    To safeguard the students, a pair  of ISB MX4222, 600mm safety lights were installed across the front of the press.  They are housed in protective metal channels  that are part of our custom-built ISB swing away mounting brackets with horizontal bar side panels.  The swing away brackets allow for total access to all sides of the bolster plate for easier die changeovers.  The horizontal bars integrated into the side panels are individually removeable to allow for material feeding and part removal chutes.

The ISB MX Safety Light is a full-featured type 4 safety light with floating beam and auto beam blanking to allow the user the most flexibility and the highest level of safety.

 The safety lights were professionally installed on site by ISB’s California distributor, Protech Systems.  (
