Machine Protection Doors

High-speed machine protection doors

Modern technology has enabled automated manufacturing systems to provide high-quality, streamlined results. However, providing these effective results requires all aspects of the manufacturing line to be technologically optimized. Machine protection doors allow manufacturers to maximize production times by optimizing floor space, speed, and employee safety.

Door Systems Provides Global Solutions Through ASSA ABLOY

Door Systems is part of ASSA ABLOY, a global manufacturing organization that develops cutting-edge engineering solutions and products. We can bring these global solutions to our local customers through our connection with ASSA ABLOY. Our machine protection doors offer a range of features to address your unique manufacturing needs.

The History of Machine Guards

Machine guards are compulsory for any machinery that can cause harm to workers. OSHA requires that guards be affixed to any machinery that could cause injury. However, historical machine guards appeared as physical shields that employees had to set into place before every production run. These guards were less effective, and they also heavily slowed production times. The integration of Machine guards began with machinery consisting of movable or sliding features. These guards sped up production times slightly but still required manual implementation by employees. Fortunately, our professionals can now automate machine protection doors, affording employees all necessary physical protection without manual labor. These automated machine protection doors offer numerous advantages.

Benefits of Machine Protection Doors

Machine protection doors ultimately prevent disruptions from unequal production flow or employee endangerment. Machine protection doors shield employees from hazardous situations, like chemical spills, weld splatter, flying parts, or loud noises. Utilizing machine protection doors can protect employees from harmful circumstances. However, our automated machine protection doors can be programmed to open and close before and after production runs. Programming to open and close significantly decreases employees' time to implement safety measures. The automated machine protection doors streamline the safety process, reducing cycle times. 

Our machine protection doors are sleek and compact commercial garage doors to maximize factory floor space. The guarding doors between the machine and the employees are much smaller than those of other methods. Optimizing space allows workers to place more manufacturing equipment in a specific area. Installing machine protection doors on any manufacturing equipment, such as automated machines, production lines, or railing systems, is essential. Additionally, these doors allow numerous machines to function at the same time, which also increases manufacturing output. Machine protection doors are also associated with lower costs due to shorter production times.

Features of Machine Protection Doors

Every commercial garage door manufacturer's needs are unique, so offering numerous machine protection doors that fit each company's needs is essential. Each machine protection door model features short cycle times, many possible cycles, flexible installation, and numerous motor installation options. They also provide safety switches and various communication options, like Ethernet/IP I/O card and PROFINET. Every machine protection door model also has benefits created to benefit specific manufacturing needs.
