TITLE
Guard for collecting conveyor
ARTICLE
Staff at this coating plant have identified a solution to the problem of adjusting and tracking the main collecting conveyor, when it is housed in a shed protected by a Castell lock and limit switch to an end door which can only be opened from inside.

To improve safety, the company created a guard to prevent access down the building towards moving machinery and extended the adjusting bars to allow access outside of the guard. In addition, remote greasing points were fitted to allow greasing from outside the guarded area to the bearings on both sides.
