||Safety measures to prevent reaching into the danger area of metalworking presses
||Nachgreifsicherheit an Pressen der Metallbearbeitung [in German]|
||June 1974, Vol.26, No.6, p.239-246. Illus. 14 ref.
||The author defines the limits of the hazard of reaching into the danger area and compares the research carried on up to the present on the velocity of the in-and-out reaching movement of the hand, considered as a safety criterion in this field. Guarding against reaching into the danger area of a press is basically linked to the problem of the inertial stroke of the ram. The author describes a method for measuring the inertia. The value of 1.6m/s laid down as a guideline in the German safety regulations is perfectly justified, in spite of slight differences of opinion. It is nevertheless only a first approximation, and further research is required.
