Rite-Hite defender cell helps guard around dangerous processes

Friday March 04, 2016
Mar. 4, 2016 - Rite-Hite Machine Guarding Defender Cell promises to restrict access and provide point-of-operation guarding around potentially dangerous automated and automatic processes including stretch-wrap machine operations.

It boasts perimeter safety products — Rite-Hite’s RoboGuard steel-wire fencing and point-of-operation guarding with a high-speed, automated barrier door, the Defender — in a four-sided safety cell. Constructed of eight-gauge welded steel wire, RoboGuard claims to effectively restrict workers and bystanders from entering dangerous work spaces where machinery might be moving. The fencing can be customizable to accommodate various applications and designs. The Defender’s automated door separates machine operators and manufacturing processes at the point-of–operation, while also allowing access to the process cell once it has powered down. According to the company, the roll-up design leaves a small physical footprint and is suitable for use around robotic processes.
