Better to be EcoSafe than sorry

Better to be EcoSafe than sorry Bosch Rexroth’s EcoSafe system meets the most stringent guarding legislation (EN292, 294 and 811), and for the Manufacturing Engineering team’s requirements it meant that their system conformed to the Machinery Directive. In advance of full production the EcoSafe system was tested on-site by having a robot crashed deliberately into it: the protective barrier deformed within acceptable limits. One of the major advantages of the EcoSafe protective barrier system is that it is made from aluminium and its anodised surfaces offer the clean finish preferred in modern manufacturing environments. When compared with heavy, cumbersome and corrosion-prone traditional steel guarding the system has numerous benefits. EcoSafe’s modular, durable, bolt-together design eliminates the need for welding, painting, special tooling and skilled labour. The bolted design allows for rapid assembly, disassembly and re-use. The lightweight, modular EcoSafe system is quick and easy to install and is also simple to reconfigure when a robot needs to be taken out for maintenance or for when the entire line needs to be reconfigured to accommodate a productivity gain. Having designed an EcoSafe installation, assembly couldn’t be simpler. After marking the perimeter on the floor the support posts are anchored, ‘hook and hang’ brackets are installed and screwed into place.
