Moving machine parts have the potential to cause severe workplace injuries, such as crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from these preventable injuries. Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact injures the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be eliminated or controlled.

ZCS offers Custom Hard Guarding to ensure operator safety. The Design process includes an on-site visit to determine guarding requirements and measurements. 3D models are generated for customer review and approval prior to fabrication. ZCS offers :

  • Walking Beam Covers
  • Lathe Shields
  • Sliding/ Hinged Doors
  • Chain/ Sprocket Guarding

Electrical/Hydraulic/Pneumatic Upgrade

Most automatic machinery has electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. Based on the risk assessment at times these circuits need to be modified to make them compliant to the relevant standards. These modifications often involve addition of safety relays/safety PLC, force guided relays, power contactors, interlocked door switches, light curtains and area scanners along with hydraulic and pneumatic dump valves and pressure switches. Our team of engineers & electricians are able to perform these upgrades.
