JM Engineering carries the ISB line of Fab Mats and
immediately signals automated and computerized equipment to stop when someone
enters the area protected by FAB-MAT. Guards potentially dangerous areas common
to metal fabricating such as CNC punching machines, benders, formers, turret
punch and lathe. FAB-MAT protects the working envelope of robots (i.e., pick and
place robots, paint spraying robots). It can be used to stop overhead or
tabletop conveyor systems and material handling equipment.
FAB-MAT can be used to
actuate doors, burglar alarms, annunciation bells, lights and signaling devices.
The FAB-MAT is appropriate around UV drying equipment, it can be used as a step
tread on mass transit vehicles.
FAB-MAT has a tough 1/4" corrugated PVC surface
that is non-slip and provides excellent abrasion resistance.
Only 3/8" thick,
FAB-MAT has tapered edges so carts and personnel gain easy access.
Alumaglas® contact elements are totally flexible for sure contact separation.
For optimum safety, 24 volts AC or DC is recommended.
FAB-MAT is water and
flame resistant, extremely tough, it can withstand severe impacts without
damaging Alumaglas® contacts. Sensitive to foot pressure, ramped edging FAB-MAT
is available for installations which require a permanent means of mounting the
mat to the floor surface.
Standard 4-wire construction for optimum operation, so
that any disruption of FAB-MAT circuitry will stop equipment. Relay is energized
during normal operating conditions. Relay is de-energized when any of the
is actuated - relay is shunted
is a short circuit - relay is shunted
is a break in lead wire - current is interrupted
is a power loss
& custom configurations
ISB will design and construct FAB-MAT to
meet your exact specifications as to size, shape, and degree of sensitivity.
Virtually any geometric shape is available.
