LazerSafe LS-FM Folding Machine Laser Safety and Guarding Systems

NEW Folding Machine Safety

LazerSafe LS-FM

The LazerSafe LS-FM folding machine laser safety and guarding system is specially designed for folding machine application. It provides a complete safety solution, including:

  • Three sensing zones (front, middle, and rear)
  • Optical protection of the clamping operation
  • Clamp position and stopping performance (overrun) monitoring
  • Management of additional machine safety components

The system also features a dual laser transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) set, which provide optical protection along the length of the clamping area. As the clamp closes, the system monitors the area between clamp and material. If any foreign obstruction is detected the clamp closing movement is stopped. This level of protection eliminates the need for a safety stop on each clamp operation thereby increasing machine productivity.
