Team members unite to make safety a priority
This image shows a laser curtain that was installed on a 500-ton Cincinnati Press Brake due to a recommendation by a team member. Several AEDC craft workers were involved with the installation. The press brake is used to bend steel plates up to three-quarters of an inch thick and 14-feet long. The safety concern for the apparatus is that the press uses large flywheels and once it is triggered, it can’t be easily stopped. If a person comes into close proximity to the moving parts, they could be injured. (AEDC photo)
