PERIMETRA FUNCTIONAL SAFETY FOR THE UP GRADING OF AN INJECTION PRESS LINE FOR THERMOPLASTIC MOULDS

PERIMETRA FUNCTIONAL SAFETY FOR THE UP GRADING OF AN INJECTION PRESS LINE FOR THERMOPLASTIC MOULDS



Industria Bergamasca Mobili S.p.A. , ISO 9001 and  ISO TS16949 certified,  works in the field of injection moulding of plastic materials and employs advanced technologies both in its moulding process (for example with RHCM) and in the automation of the production lines.
Access was appointed the task to develop a project to guarantee the functional safety of 9 injection presses for thermoplastic moulds which had to include automation of unloading.
 Once received the risk analysis drafted by the customer and the ESR (Essential Safety Requirements), Access Engineers developed the protection layout in conformity with the harmonized standards which also included the project for access control for the acquired PLr as per specific standard requirement set by UNI EN ISO 13849:2016.
 
Access delivered the entire turnkey project only 3 weeks after design approval:
 
Material
Penta Guard Fencing System, 20 x 100 mm mesh ,2520 mm height combined with  Meta 1 Fixing Brackets  60x60 mm section
N.1 controlled access by means of a FG60 sensor in the Clo.Sys lock combined with a FR992 micro-switch in order to achieve  PLd.
 
Mechanical component assembly 
 
Assembly of guard fencing panels and access control system 
 
Laying and cabling of implemented parts 
 
Wire and cable sleeving, sensor connection and interfacing  
Control Electrical Cabinet
N.1 signal light
 
Functional tests and documentation release 
Upon installation termination, functional tests were carried out in the presence of plant manufacturer and BM SpA operators in order to release the following documentation:
Certification
User and Maintenance Manuals 
Technical Data Sheets and Electrical layouts
 
The above mentioned documentation was essential for the plant user to achieve CE marking for the complete line.
 

Electro-locking system with access request management


Falling parts prevention protection system in operator area



Penta guard fencing  20x100 mesh
Meta 1 fixing brackets  60x60 section with captive screw as per EN ISO 14120

This project needed use to fence-off an automatic manipulator acting as a vacuum Pick-and-Place device at low speed, due to product fragility, of 250 mm/sec and 5 pcs/hour.
Such features allowed us to manage part-exit opening on a conveyor belt and as residual risk apply dedicated notices (92/58/CEE Directive) which would inform operators about the eventual risks of mounting the belt. By doing so we delivered a safe solution without having to apply photo-electric barriers.
