Protech Systems has developed a new series of Safety Blocks.
Safety Blocks provide safety during set up and maintenance for power presses. This is done by mechanically and electrically preventing inadvertent die closure. The new model 42 Safety Blocks are for smaller presses, with a maximum static load of 35 tons (having a wide span of adjustable heights). Made of high strength lightweight extruded aluminum. Selection of the proper style and size is determined by the press static load and the required open height. Safety Blocks using wedges are also available, as well as their standard model 42 for larger presses.
