Press Release Summary:
Utilizing vision-based technology, Model V 4000 offers point-of-operation safeguarding on press brake machines in metalworking and automotive applications. System mounts on upper beam of press brake and provides safeguarding during fast downward movement of punch. It creates safety volume below die that is constantly monitored for intrusion. Output Signal Switching Device provides signal to switch off machine as soon as intruding object is detected.
Original Press Release:
V 4000 - First Vision-Based Press Brake System
The new V 4000 Press Brake is the first camera sensor that offers both maximum safety and optimization on press brake machines. This device utilizes vision-based technology for point-of-operation safeguarding on press brake machines in metalworking and automotive applications. SICK will launch its new V 4000 Press Brake System at the METALFORM 2005 tradeshow in booth # 1807, March 20 - 23.
The V 4000 Press Brake system mounts on the upper beam of the press brake and provides safeguarding during the fast downward movement of the punch. The V 4000 Press Brake System creates a safety volume below the die that is constantly monitored for intrusion. The Output Signal Switching Device (OSSD) on the V 4000 Press Brake System provides a signal to switch off the machine as soon as an intruding object is detected.
