Stop Time Testing
For ALL your Power Press Requirements
When did you last Inspect your Safety Light Curtains?
Machinery must stop in the time it takes a person to break a light beam and reach the hazard.
Over time friction clutch/brakes can wear and become less effective therefore safety devices will be in-effective if the distance to the hazard is too short and the person can reach the danger point before the hazard can be controlled.
BS EN ISO 13855 is an International Standard which establishes the positioning of safeguards with respect to the approach speeds of parts of the human body.
TMA has the latest test equipment to measure stop times.
Our equipment accurately measures how long moving parts take to stop and calculates the safety distance then a report is issued.
Most light guard manufacturers state these tests should be carried out regularly which is normally interpreted as annually.
