WireCrafters Physical Barriers at IMTS 2014 in Chicago

IMTS 2014

WireCrafters will be exhibiting at this year's IMTS (International Manufacturing Technology Show) in Chicago at booth W-1255.

We will be displaying our wire partition machine guard and physical barrier product - both of which have been updated to reflect upcoming changes in the international standard for the physical guarding of robots and machinery, including the ANSI / RIA international standard (R15.06-2012).

In addition, many other exhibitors will be utilizing WireCrafters' machine guarding around their robots and other products, including Lincoln Electric (booth N-6520) and Yaskawa Motoman Robotics (booth N-6600).

Machine Guarding with New StandardsRegarding the new machine guarding standards, the post height will be 5'-3 1/4" with a 3 1/4" sweep space, with our standard 5 foot high panel. This change will keep WireCrafters' stock physical barriers in line with the new max sweep space of 0'-6" while still meeting the minimum height requirement of 5'-0".

At WireCrafters, we want to provide you a safety product that you can be certain will protect your investments, and more importantly, your employees. Free design & layout assistance is available.
