Floating Blank - (8K) Option
The "Floating Blank" option provides the flexibility necessary
to effectively guard all types of equipment that require multiple floating beams. This is quite common in the
fabricating industry where the workpiece moves.
The "Floating Blank" permits work pieces to be formed
vertically or horizontally through the guarded area without shutting down the machine. Entry into the protected
area by the operator or passerby will prevent the start or, if the machine is in motion, will provide a signal to
stop the machine.
The "Floating Blank" is controlled by a keyed selector switch
that will allow a work opening of 8 cm based on 2 cm increments (shown above). Blanking adjustments required when
die heights change are not necessary. The "Floating Blank" light curtain automatically adjusts to the various feed
positions providing protection with production.
The "Floating Blank" (8K) Option includes:
- 2 CM - Constant scan light curtain
- 4 CM - One floating beam
- 6 CM - Two floating beams
- 8 CM - Three floating beams
