  • I hope we never get forced into getting these

    At least with that system the machine can be observed in oprtation. Our guards are metal, and plastic. There is almost no way to see what is going on inside the machine.

      By being forced to get these, the cost could effectively bankrupt most smaller center ya think?

          and by the looks of this cage set up it makes it look impossible to make many repairs what I would call the "conventional" way

            I do not want to use a stick to clear jams like that with moving belts. Much easier to control my fingers from a couple inches then a stick from five feet.
            Sometimes we have to do stuff to get by....Just go back and do it right when the "by" has passed!!

                    Open door machine turns off. Step in and close door behind you, machine turns back on. Now what is the guard going to protect. The not properly trained and risk takers will still get hurt. But now the owner has a way to deny your medical claim because you were caught in the cage with a running machine.
                    With this system you'll also need a good robotic video camera hooked up to a nice big HD monitor (more $$$$$$) so you can watch the problem areas like the turret clutch and gear box linkage. And you'll need 2 five foot long non conductive micro sticks to take readings with your volt meter at TS2. Who has steady hands? lol Would be nice to hear from a mechanic who has to work around this on a daily basis.

                      Hi, joined today. Name is David. (See New Members) I have been trained as an OHS rep here in Australia. Having just seen the above Vid. I think from an OHS viewpoint that that system is over engineered, unnecessary and has taken OHS too far. This seems to take responsibility away from the tech and put back on to the Employer. While employers are responsible for safe work environs, training is a major key in safe work practices, not through expensive systems. One are which is out of control is when kids/people run down the lane pass the ball sensors. A shutdown system for that would be great. Uncertain if one has been designed.

                            That appears to be a world wide problem.

                              The Brunswick ETB have a lock out feature. If the rake doesn't fall all the way, it blacks out. If the ball detect is continuously blocked it will not trigger.

                              As far as all this safety cage stuff is concerned, I would prefer to train someone up with an eye towards safety. This is known as common sense!

                              But, as we all know, common sense can not be learned.
