Whitepaper from | KINGSTAR

Industry 4.0 is reshaping manufacturing in the same way that Amazon transformed retailing. The  initiative seeks to drive manufacturers and machine builders to integrate all machine automation  and machine controller information. By doing so, machine builders can discover new information-based products and identify opportunities to build smarter factories capable of automatically taking corrective or optimizing actions.

These White Papers from KINGSTAR provide valuable success stories and insights into how Industry 4.0 is creating new product opportunities for machine builder companies and how to capatalize and prepare your company to take advantage of these new opportunities.

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Dynatect Automated Machine Safety Roll-Up Doors

Need to increase safety? Are you using light curtains? Is space a concern? Dynatect's Gortite® VF Automated Machine Safety Door combines safety technology, speed, and a physical barrier to isolate hazardous operations. Use of a physical barrier with safety sensors can save up to 30 square feet of manufacturing space. Using the ANSI minimum safety distance formula, the Gortite® VF Door limits the depth penetration factor and average approach speed, allowing closer location of the safeguarding device. Unlike light curtains, which can't contain process hazards, an automated machine safety door can isolate common workplace debris. This physical barrier is designed to contain process driven hazards such as weld sparks, UV flash, and light debris. Thus, the operator can maintain closer proximity to the work area improving ergonomics and productivity.
