Lazer Safe to launch the Sentinel Press Brake Guarding System at Fabtech 2014
Sentinel is an advanced press brake guarding system designed for retrofit applications and provides the highest level of operator protection while maintaining machine productivity and performance.
The Sentinel laser transmitter and receiver are mounted to the upper beam of the press brake. A continuous dual laser field protects the zone directly below the punch tip allowing the operator to hold the work piece as the tools close at high speed. If an obstruction is detected the machine is automatically stopped. This close proximity protection allows the operator unrestricted access to the point of operation for increased productivity and unlike traditional light curtains, reduces fatigue by enabling the operator to remain standing in the same position.
Key features include RapidBend and AutoSense technology, a user friendly interface panel with colour graphics display, integrated status LEDs, fast set-up and adjustment and much more.
Sentinel will replace the highly successful LZS-003-HS Press Brake Guarding System after 14 years in the retrofit market and thousands of systems installed worldwide. Lazer Safe will be running live demonstrations of the Sentinel Press Brake Guarding System during Fabtech 2014 at booth B4325. Click here to view the Sentinel product page.
