Okuma America Corporation, a world-leader in CNC machine tool manufacturing, will host an "Easy Shop Floor Automation" event, Wednesday, June 22, 2016, 10am-2:30pm in Charlotte, N.C. at Partners in THINC, 12428 Sam Neely Road. The event will include tips and demonstrations of simple automation technologies that enable machine tool users to maximize productivity and profitability in their shops.

Automation doesnt need to be expensive or time intensive to implement. Automated gaging, bar feeders, parts catchers, robotic cells and flexible manufacturing systems can benefit shops of all sizes. Technology "must-dos" and automation justification will be highlighted.

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.
