Diagonal door opening

Problems

Limited access to the interior of machine tools often leads to unfavourable and constrained body postures (see also EN 1005-4). Catching on the door frame also constitutes an exacerbated injury risk.

Solution

On machines in the MVC Spinner range, the safety doors are located not on the front of the machine, but diagonally. This substantially increases the available clearance. Access from two sides provides good accessibility to more areas on the worktable, as a result of which unfavourable body postures are avoided (see EN 12417:2009, Table 2; EN 13128:2009, Table 5). This benefit is further enhanced by the fact that the design of the worktable enables it to be brought close to the opening.

Principle of operation

  • Use of machine geometry in order to increase the dimensions of access openings
