Making it safe; ISB’s New Extended Range (XT) Type 4 Safety Light Curtain with a 20-meter (65 feet) Scanning Range.
A Merlin 4000 Press Brake Guarding System was recently installed on a Tandem Pacific Press Brake. The overall length of the machine is approximately 48 feet. The newly released Extended Range (XT) ISB Light Curtain columns were utilized and aligning the Emitter and Detector was no problem. With a scanning capability of 20 meters (65 feet), they had plenty of extra scanning range to spare. These new Extended Range (XT) Safety Light Curtains are available to operate with the MERLIN 4000 Press Brake Guarding System, as well as stand-alone Type 4 Safety Light Curtains.
The new Extended Range (XT) light curtains are available with 30mm detection capability.
This installation was performed by one of ISB’s Authorized Installers, Blount’s Press Brake. http://www.blountspressbrake.com
