Improving Winder Safety

The batch process occurring at the winder represents one of highest potential areas of danger in the mill for operators and maintenance personnel. Speeds and technology continue to increase. Regulations are changing (e.g. EN ISO 13849 machinery standards). How safe is safe enough? Will a safety upgrade reduce overall throughput? Will automating some winder functions both improve safety and productivity? How much downtime will be required? These and more questions will be answered in this webinar. Included in the discussion will be guards, fencing, E-stops, electrical and fluid control improvements, mechanical holding devices, threading and splicing modifications and automation.
