Hydraulic Presses with PSDI Capability

Friday, February 01, 2008
 
Beckwood Press Co., St. Louis, MO, now offers hydraulic presses equipped with PSDI (presence sensing device initiation) for increased productivity and safety. The PSDI control system uses electro-optical (light-curtain) guarding to activate the press cycle, rather than a traditional two-hand touch-button system.

As the press operator breaks the light curtain to remove a finished part, sensors detect the beam interruption and send a signal to the control system. When the beam is again interrupted by the operator’s placement of a new part into the press, sensors send a second signal to the press control. After the second beam interruption, when the sensors have detected that the point of operation is clear of the operator’s hands or other objects, the press will automatically cycle.
