Título Safety measures to prevent reaching into the danger area of metalworking presses
Título original Nachgreifsicherheit an Pressen der Metallbearbeitung [en alemán]
Información bibliográfica June 1974, Vol.26, No.6, p.239-246. Illus. 14 ref.
Resumen 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.
