Machine Guarding Systems

Our Machine Guarding protects employees around machinery by keeping them at a safe distance. It also doubles as a safety net by containing malfunctioning machinery and equipment. This is because welded and woven wire mesh is extremely resilient and is virtually maintenance-free. It eases operations and increases your plant's productivity. Additionally, the versatility of this system allows for easy integration of access doors or other openings with system controls.

Product and Solution

IKO International is a manufacturer of needle bearings, linear motion rolling guides, and other machine components. IKO was in need of machine guarding to increase safety around their production lines. Through our dealer, Eastern Lift Truck, we provided IKO with the proper machine guarding systems for their plant. They wanted an increase in safety measures to improve the employee workplace experience and the use of the machinery. We used 6' machine guarding with interlocked doors to achieve their goal.
