Automation Guarding: Why Kyrus is Number 1 for Required Automation Guarding Parts

Automation guarding plays an important part in keeping operators safe whilst working alongside hazardous machinery often found in manufacturing. As specialists in automated machinery, Kyrus provides machine guarding and enclosures to ensure these systems can be used safely and efficiently.

What is machine guarding?

Machine guarding is a safety procedure to protect operators of hazardous machinery, providing a shield over machinery parts or around the machine. Machine guarding can take many forms to do this, either preventing direct contact with dangerous parts or intercepting chips and sparks that may be produced during the machinery’s operation. An example of this may be barrier guarding (where guarding is fixed at the point of operation) versus fixed perimeter guarding (where a guard is placed around the perimeter of the machine).
Whether or not a machine requires guarding is determined through PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and the ISO 14120-2015 Standard).

What are guards and enclosures?

Guards and enclosures form two different types of machine guarding. Whilst enclosures provide a protective cage around the machine, guarding components may be smaller – shielding specific hazardous points of a machine. A barrier guard and an interlocking guard are two examples of guards that protect smaller areas of automation components which may cause injury to operators. Machine enclosures on the other hand may be mesh or solid panels, fitted around a machine or extending further to include a control area.
