Folder Safety Upgrade

A serious incident on a sheet folding machine required Worksafe to investigate. They issued a prohibition notice until the machine safety was upgraded and functionally proven to comply against AS/NZS4024.1 and associated standards. Dalton Electrical was commissioned to complete this task because of their extensive experience in current safety standards and machine automation. The job was to design, build, implement, and verify a system that would allow the machine to function effectively while keeping up with production demands and also meet the requirements for the appropriate safety standards to ensure safe operation. This included designing and commissioning a category 3 safety concept that complied with the Risk Assessment which had been verified by Worksafe.
