Wood industry

Occupational safety has a high priority in the wood industry because machines with a high risk of injury are used in this sector, such as sawing machines.

Characteristic of the industry is that many machining processes are used outdoors and often harsh environmental conditions – e.g., flying wood chips, splinters, and sawdust – pose a challenge. Schmersal has therefore developed an outdoor-suitableportfolio of robust and explosion-proof safety components and systems especially for the wood industry.

Non-contact safety sensors are suitable for environments where wood chips or dust or heavy contamination could impair the function of the switching devices. This is because the wear-free mode of operation, avoiding mechanical actuating elements, enables a resistant design of these safety components.

Another example are the particularly robust command and control devices of the R range for the man-machine interface. The R series is resistant to mechanical stresses and is easy to operate even when wearing gloves.

With this portfolio, Schmersal ensures maximum occupational safety in the wood industry.
