Unimpeded access from above

Problems

When parts are loaded into and retrieved from machining centres, high loads must often be handled (see EN 1005-2). In some cases, these parts must also be inserted and fixed in the clamping devices with a high degree of precision and with adoption by the worker of an unfavourable body posture.

Stress category

Solution

Cranes and lifting gear can be used in order to avoid heavy loads having to be handled manually. The ease of access to the machine tool's worktable from above enables cranes and lifting gear to be used easily and effectively to lift heavy workpieces into the machine and to stabilize them whilst they are being secured to the worktable (see EN 12417:2009, Table 2; EN 13128:2009, Table 5).
