MultiCam currently implements safety controls on all systems and have now added additional safety control options to its MultiCam product line. Its new options such as the light curtain, safety mat, and laser safety eyewear are added protection to the router, laser, plasma, knife, and waterjet, and digital finishing machines and operators.
Light curtains are photoelectric transmitters that cast infrared light beams to a receiver unit around the MultiCam machine. They act as a personal safety device by stopping the cutting sequence once an object or person crosses the beams. At start-up, the machine automatically checks for any safety faults and will issue either a safe status or a warning.
Additional safety control options offered by MultiCam include safety mats and eyewear. Safety mats are fitted around the machine system to provide a safe area for operators to enter when needing to stop motion and close the mechanical shutter. Special eyewear is encouraged for operators and other personnel that will provide additional protection for the eyes during laser operation.
