FABTECH 2012: Press Brake Guarding System



Lazer Safe LZS-003-HS press brake guarding system is a retrofit system that fully complies with the new ANSI B11.3-2012 press brake standard which includes close proximity of operation safeguarding devices. Also known as Laser AOPD, the technology has become standard for many press brakes sold in the US, both on imported machines and those manufactured locally. The LZS-003-HS features a laser transmitter and receiver that are mounted on the upper beam of the press. Two continuous parallel flat-band lasers provide a 40-mm protective zone directly below the punch, allowing the operator to remain close to the workpiece as the tools close at high speed. If an obstruction is detected, the beam movement is stopped so that the punch cannot make contact with the obstruction.
