PK USA Orders First North American Lincoln Electric Guardian Fire Safety Solution

The Guardian fire safety solution prevents, detects and suppresses fires when a total system is installed. The spark arrestors in a system can stop fires before they start, while the limestone feeders provide chemical-fire protection to extinguish a fire, if one occurs.(Click on photo to enlarge it)

Fail-Safe: Making Automated Metal Fabrication and Welding Safer

Eden is a non-contact safety sensor used on interlocked gates and hatches for non-magnetic, non-contact closure safety that has built in diagnostics and quick disconnect.  The maximum sensing distance is 15 mm ± 2 mm. Up to 30 Eden sensors can be connected in series to achieve the same safety level in the safety circuit. It is also possible to connect safety light beams and E-stops in the same safety circuit.(Click on photo to enlarge it)
These innovative electronic safety components and mechanical interlock switches from ABB Jokab Safety make automated metal fabrication and welding operations safer while maintaining optimal productivity.
