Regulatory Compliance

This category includes safety equipment used to limit an operator’s access to the moving points of a machine, or to automatically withdraw all or part of an operator’s body from a point of operation. Pullback devices can include cords connected to the wrists and linked to a machine, which allow the operator’s hands to enter the machine’s point of operation, but will automatically withdraw them during the machine cycle. Restraints operate similarly to pullbacks, but instead completely restrict an operator from accessing an area or point of operation.

THE ANSI / AWS WAY TO A SAFE WELDING WORKPLACE

With Video

U.S. welding engineers that use industrial arc welding robots can choose from a number of available voluntary industry standards to provide guidance on the subject of robot system safeguard selection.
