UPGRADES ADDED TO AUTOMATED BARRIER PANEL
Rite-Hite Machine Guarding has reintroduced its Vertiguard automated
barrier panel with several new upgrades. The bottom-up pneumatic panel
provides physical separation between machine operators and manufacturing processes. It is suitable for small interaction points with single or double
robotic cells, part assembly, and conveyor openings.
The panel offers a compact footprint and protects workers from applica-tion-driven hazards. The pneumatically operated, vertically rising system also
allows for overhead crane loading. In addition, the low-profile design helps
prevent back injuries, since it requires minimal reach-in to load parts.
The standard size has been increased to 110 by 96 in. (from 72 by 86
in.). Other upgrades include improved finger guard, new brand cylinder and
flange mount with center support, improved sliding panel design, improved
interlock switch brackets and additional switch options, and galvanized steel
back panel and cylinder cover.
