||This guide addresses means available for safeguarding hydraulic power press brakes, mainly against the risk of operators being caught up and crushed between the dies. It emphasizes two recently-developed protection techniques: light curtains and laser beam devices, and is aimed at all persons involved in decisions relating to the safeguarding of hydraulic press brakes. The first part presents basic safeguarding concepts together with the vocabulary related to hydraulic power press brakes. The next part defines the production variables that need to be taken into account when selecting the most suitable safeguarding methods. Various means of safeguarding the front, rear and lateral zones are then explained.
