Machine Safety Door Suitable for Automated Processes
IMTS 2018: Dynatect’s Gortite VF automated machine safety door is intended to maximize safety and productivity by combining speed and safety technology.
Dynatect’s Gortite VF automated machine safety door is intended to maximize safety and productivity by combining speed and safety technology. Applications include automated production and machine processes that require preventive measures, such as robotic welding, processing and transport tasks.
The safety door reduces the amount of buffer space needed for light curtains to create a safety zone and lessens machine footprint. It contains common process-generated hazards, such as light debris, fluid splatter/mist, weld smoke, sparks and intense flash. The door is designed to reduce cycle time and maximize production in automated environments. It is rated for over 1 million cycles.
Removable aluminum-side-column covers facilitate access for installation, travel adjustment and preventive maintenance. The door mechanism moves on a no-maintenance ball-bearing guidance system to provide low-wear operation. All sensor cables are terminated on the door’s frame to a passive block with quick disconnects. Side columns and a top-roll header feature T-slots on multiple surfaces. The top-roll header arrives fully assembled.
