Why Have Safety Interlocking?
An electrical safety interlock prevents the machine from operating when the shield is opened. This safety guard features an electric switch that disables the machine motor. The switch is made in such a way as to prevents easy bypass of the interlock switch.
When we do on-site visits, we often see safety shields moved to the side and never put back on the machine. An interlock is a simple solution to prevention of safety guard misuse or removal.
