Keeping a low profile
Banner Engineering Corp. has added low-profile models to its line of safety light screens.  These models feature a space-saving footprint – ideal for safeguarding of smaller machines – with reliable performance suited even for large power presses. The first and last beams of the EZ-Screen Low Profile are placed at the ends of the light screen, delivering continuous detection along the entire light screen length and eliminating the dead zones found on traditional safety light curtains, the company said. The EZ-Screen LP has 14 or 25 mm resolution models, defined areas from 270 to 1810 mm and detection ranges up to 7 m.  According to Banner Engineering Corp., this model provides “reliable safeguarding” in a variety of applications, including small assembly equipment, lean and robotic work cells, roll formers, automated production equipment, pick-and-place machines, power and molding presses, and palletizers and packaging machinery.
