Safety Systems for Slitting Lines

Machinesafety in the metal & aluminium industry

Manages access based on skill level or role

Applicaite slitterlijnen

amGard Pro with FRANK
Use your own ID card to access the secure zone. The FRANK system controls which employees are granted access and who is present in the zone. 

amGard Pro with Frank Access Control
Determine by ID card and FRANK who has access to operate the HMI and easily add controls for machine operation. 

Light Curtains
Multi beams light curtains control access, detect employees and generate a machine stop.

Machine Guarding
Machine guarding prevents
physical access to the slitter line. 

By integrating the electro-mechanical safety components with the FRANK access and control system (Ethernet connected) safe access to the slitting line can be obtained through personal (RFID) badges. The FRANK controller can manage the access authorisation based on role or training level. For productivity analysis FRANK can additionally give insight on access frequency and access duration. FRANK access control manages authorisation of operators using your own badge system
