Both the automotive industry and other industrial sectors place equally stringent demands on automated manufacturing processes. Even the smallest error can result in downtimes and put employees at risk. Machine protection doors are an effective safety measure, providing optimal protection for personnel and machines without adversely affecting cycle times. They enable a rapid switch from complete isolation of a production stage to unimpeded access to the workpiece and machine in a matter of seconds, effectively protecting personnel from flying sparks, welding spatter etc.
With a rigid, reinforced curtain made from aluminum slats, the RapidProtect™ 2000 provides complete protection, even from deflection of the curtain.
The slats are connected with side-mounted flat belts for contact-free winding, which ensures:
- very rapid speeds
- reduced operational noise
- very long maintenance intervals
- long service life
- scratch resistant surface
Individual slats can easily be replaced as required.
The side frames are self-supporting and made of galvanized steel shoot sections. The top roll cover is made of anodized aluminum, motor cover is made of grey plastic or steel. The side frames can be powder-coated in many RAL colours
Slats made of anodized aluminum. Optional: For process monitoring when the door is closed, slats with windows made of polycarbonate are optionally available. The door slats can be powder-coated in many RAL colours.
Curtain for laser protection
RapidProtectTM 2000 was specifically developed for Laser Protection areas. Its double walled slats prevent penetration from laser beams throughout the whole area of the curtain.
The door has a pre-running photocell. As option a door line photocell can be choosen. The door line photocell also prevents the door from closing when objects are interfering
Motor cover and top roll cover
The door can be fitted with a motor and top roll cover when needed. For doors of height < 2,5 m the use of top roll cover is required according to standard EN 13241-1.
Motor can be fitted on the right- or lefthand side.
The high performance frequency control MCC VectorControl is installed underneath the drive unit without requiring a lot of space. It ensures an extremely dynamic run of the door with short cycle times. The microprocessor control of the door makes individual programming for special customer demands possible.
The display unit with its user-friendly graphic display and foil keypad. Optional: display for operation, start-up and error reports. The display can be used to operate several doors.
Safety limit switches integrated in the side frame
For the indication “door safely losed”, safety limit switches according to PL e/Kat. 4 (EN ISO 13849-1), SIL 3 (EN 62061) are integrated in the side frame. Delivered with safety monitoring module as standard. Optional evaluation by the machines safety systems (versions without safety monitoring module). Transparent covers allow easy monitoring and easy access. (2 units for the laser version)
Floor brackets webbed foot plates
The door can be mounted freestanding on floor with optional webbed foot plates. Levelling screws allow adjustment by uneven floor.
