Provides horizontal or vertical light curtain across protected tool loading area. Class 3 and OSHA and ESA compliant with separate safety circuitry. Designed to meet those corporate standards where a "zero access" requirement is cited. Light curtain system integrated to press air supply valve and electric shuttle motion circuit for operator access safety. Any light curtain violation will require the cycle to re-home and start over. Eliminates the standard Banner Optitouch hand sensors which are replaced by single green push button to initiate the entire cycle automatically.
While the sealer completes the entire cycle safely, the operator can prepare the next load internal to the current cycle time. A significant gain of productivity while eliminating repetitive motion fatigue of a standard push/pull manual shuttle.
Operationally, the product and tray materials are loaded in the tool, the operator presses the green start button and the electric auto shuttle cycles into position, seals, releases, returns to the home position. Standard single channel Festo press pneumatic control valves are replaced by dual channel Ross safety rated pneumatic control valve system. Requires the Auto Electric Shuttle & Auto Pressure options. Standard single channel pneumatic control valves are replaced by dual channel Ross safety rated pneumatic control valve system. Auto Pressure regulation is still provided by standard Festo system.
Light Curtains are standard equipment on Atlas Vac Model 1830S All Electric Tray sealer.
