When fitting safety systems to older presses and press-brakes, it is important to fit monitored hydraulic or pneumatic valves. These devices require careful engineering to ensure their efficacy and reliability.

Coaxial valves

11 October, 2008

RSG’s range of coaxial valves offers a compact design, actuated by solenoid or pressure pilot and is suitable for a wide variety of media with pressure ratings to 250 bar.

Lockable valves

11 October, 2008

The Praher Valves range of lockable ball, butterfly and diaphragm valves permits the operator to secure the valve in either the open or closed position, with the aid of a padlock or similar locking device. In the case of the butterfly and diaphragm valves, the hand lever/wheel may be locked in open, closed or a variety of increments in between.

Modular safety system

11 October, 2008

The Sirius 3RK3 series modular safety system MSS combines the functionality of a safety relay and a programmable logic controller (PLC).

Safety interlock switch

11 October, 2008

The MZM 100 safety interlock uses an electromagnet to lock the machine guard, therefore requiring no actuator key. The switch detects and monitors the actuator plate through an integrated, non-contact sensor that uses ‘pulse-echo technology’.

Failsafe manual reset thermostats

18 September, 2008

The KMF series of failsafe thermostats monitor temperatures in furnaces, ovens, kilns, boilers or any application where an overtemperature condition would result in a critical failure.

Safety system

18 September, 2008

The HIMax safety system is designed for maximum fault tolerance and minimal maintenance downtime. All maintenance, expansion and modification work of the system can always be performed online during process operation — without cutting back on safety. This includes the execution of proof test, a mandatory requirement of IEC/AS 61508/11.

Worker dies from electric shock

10 September, 2008

A linesman died recently, four days after receiving an electric shock at Croydon in Melbourne’s outer east.

Position controller software

18 August, 2008

The Praxxis Panfold application has been released. This software loads into Praxxis displays and position controllers to provide a complete solution that controls the fold angle on a pan folder or long folder or similar machine.

Safety guidelines for ACT subcontractors

18 August, 2008

The ACT government has launched the Occupational Health Safety and Environment SubbyPack for the ACT Building and Construction Industry. 

Valve labeller

Praher Valves has released a colour-coded labelling system for valves and pipe clips.

Micromax Safety controller

01 July, 2008

The flexible SC22-3 safety controller from Banner Engineering lowers the installation and troubleshooting costs of interfacing multiple safety devices to machine control systems.

Press depth control

01 July, 2008

The Praxxis press depth control application is designed to complement the Praxxis position controllers, used in application-specific machinery control systems.

Lockable shut-off valve

01 July, 2008

Infinity’s safety shut-off valve ensures a safe and secure way to isolate a machine or area so it can be worked on by maintenance workers or machine operators.
