Albany Rapid Protect (RP) family of high speed machine protection doors

Assa Abloy Entrance Systems - Albany Door Division


Assa Abloy Entrance Systems produces the Albany Rapid Protect™ (RP) family of high speed machine protection doors. The Albany RP300™ and RP2000™ are recognized throughout the globe as the ultimate safety barrier for separating machine operators from machine hazards.

The RP300™ is very popular for arc welding applications while the rigid curtain on the RP2000™ makes this door a great choice for laser equipped cells. The Albany Brand, with door line photo cells and safety switches integrated into the side frames, has been the machine protection door of choice for European Machine Builders and Automotive Line Builders for decades.

ATI Expands their Line of Robotic Collision Sensors ATI Industrial Automation

ATI Expands their Line of Robotic Collision Sensors

ATI Industrial Automation has just released the newest addition to its line of Robotic Collision Sensors. The SR-48 was developed to provide a lower range Collision Sensor than the SR-61 model, but with a similar robust design. ATI’s patented design includes an automatic reset feature that benefits workplace safety. After the robot crashes, the Collision Sensor will automatically reset when the robot removes the tooling from the crash-causing object. Compliant in the X, Y and Z axes, this capability provides a safer method for resetting by making it unnecessary for personnel to enter the robotic work cell.

Drop-N-Lock® bracket system FOLDING GUARD

The unique, easy-to-use Drop-N-Lock® bracket system complies with new ANSI standards.

Folding Guard® introduces a new fastening feature for its Saf-T-Fence® line of partitioning products. The Drop-N-Lock® system is a quick and easy method of connecting Saf-T-Fence® panels to the posts. This uniquely designed new system saves time and money on the installation and removal of panels, especially on large fencing projects. The captive fastener remains attached to the panel when the panel is removed from the post, complying with the new ANSI code (ANSI/RIA R15.06-2012) requirements released this year. This means hardware can’t be misplaced, preventing panel installment and leaving open access to hazardous areas.
Modular Safety Gate Switches for Machine Guarding Applications  Fortress Interlocks

Modular Safety Gate Switches for Machine Guarding Applications

Fortress Interlocks offer the most robust safety interlocks in industry today. Suitable for applications in accordance with EN/ISO 13849-1 PLE

  • Extremely robust – fit and forget (designed for the lifecycle of the machine).
  • Modular construction – can be configured to suit many different applications.
  • Always engages/works even if guard doors drop over time due to misalignment feature.
  • EN standards compliant – suitable for highest category of safety (SIL3/Ple).
  • Includes personnel keys to protect operators inside the guarded area – no inadvertent start up allowed.
  • Interfaces with lockout/tagout procedures as standard.
  • Emergency release provided on new handle arrangement so operator cannot be trapped inside guarded area.
  • Incorporates control functionality – no need for additional control box and wiring as it is all provided at point of entry (saves time and money).
  • Strongest tongue switch on the market – 10KN head retention force.
  • Prevents machine nuisance trips due to anti-vibration facility.
 Fronius Robotic Time Twin Fronius

Fronius Robotic Time Twin

Two wires - one process. With TimeTwin, controllable digital power sources work totally independently - with two separate filler wires - in just one gas nozzle and in a common weld pool. This shortens the cycle times and increases the weld quality and productivity in high-performance welding.

Safe and Efficient Products

PIAB USA, Inc.

Piab has a line of products that provide safe and efficient operation such as our Vacuum Check Valve,  a recent innovation that “traps” vacuum pressure for an indefinite period in a leak-free system.   This feature allows parts to be handled safely in case of system interruption or failure.  

Integrated into this check valve, Piab’s patented COAX® technology is an advanced solution  for creating vacuum with compressed air. With a COAX® based vacuum pump, energy consumption  can be greatly reduced without sacrificing power and flow.
