Rockford Systems Offers Live Webinar on Safeguarding Press Brakes

Rockford Systems, LLC, a provider of machine safeguarding products and services, is presenting a free webinar in its educational series. “Safeguarding Press Brakes: Light Curtian vs. Laser AODP,” will be Tuesday, October 17, 2017, from 10 AM to 11 AM CST.

The webinar will take an in-depth look at the evolution of press-brake safety, which continues to progress as manufacturers introduce new ways to address worker safety without sacrificing machine capacity. Specifically, it will compare AODP technologies vs. more traditional approaches, such as light curtains.

“Press brakes require an operator’s hands to work very closely with parts powerful enough to bend and shape heavy sheetmetal, so the process itself is always inherently dangerous,” said Carrie Halle, Vice President of Marketing for Rockford Systems, LLC. “Our webinar details how modern press brake operations can ensure worker safety while simultaneously meeting ever-increasing production needs.”

Of special focus will be the Sentinel Plus Press Brake Guarding System featuring RapidBend technology for faster, safer operation. RapidBend works with flat sheets and box profile parts so the machine can close at high speed to 2 mm above the material, boosting productivity and safety.

Leading the webinar is Gary Holdson, Technical Support Manager at THCO. Participants will be able to ask questions in real-time as the webinar is going on.
