Machine tools accomplish diverse processes in the metal working industry, e.g. turning, milling, grinding, and punching. Every second counts, especially in large batch production: the productivity is a highly crucial factor to determine the competitive advantages of a machine tool.
As machinery safety is regarded, this means that the safety guards must not affect or interfere with the productivity. Schmersal develops powerful safety systems for the machine tool construction in accordance with this principle for many decennia already.
