Title Rebuilding of friction clutch mechanical presses. Examples of electrical circuit diagrams
Original title Rénovation des presses mécaniques à embrayage à friction - Exemples de schémas électriques [in French]
Bibliographic information 2nd Quarter 1987, No.127, Note No.1629-127-87, p.229-256. Illus.
Abstract The safety of press operators depends to a large extent on how well the circuits which control most of the guards and protective devices are designed and built. For users and retailers wishing to rebuild old presses (which are not covered by Decree No.81-938 of 13 Oct. 1981 applicable in France), this document proposes circuit diagrams which take safety into account and provide for the main uses of friction clutch mechanical presses with at least one function involving manual workpiece feed and withdrawal.
