When you consider the different aspects of machine guarding to safeguard your equipment, the physical construction of the gear itself has always been one of the most important elements. Previously made from painted and welded steel, more and more engineers, are turning to advancements in other materials that offer flexibility and versatility.
The advantages of using the newer types of equipment over others are the capacity of the suppliers to design economical and functional shields for a short period. It also gives the provider the option for quick set up, and if needed easy modification capabilities to the structure in future. Where the enclosure of a perimeter is required, like the robot attachments and large tools, users can have access to a wide range of panel sizes for simple construction and fast delivery.
