Safety first: New features in Alfra-busbar machining

Busbar processing "Alfra-Style" is going to be even safer. New features do not only improve the service life of the high-quality devices - but also protect the health of the people, who operate the machines.

Hydraulic hose and electrical control cable for the BS 120 busbar bending and hole punching unit are now found in a sturdy protective hose – to prevent damage and to ensure clean cable routing.

Effective hand protection is offered by the S 125 busbar cutter. There is an acrylic glass partition on the right and left side of the unit, shielding the blade in the cutting area.
Since seconds count – the emergency stop switch and safety foot switch immediately stop the pump that powers the S 125. This function is triggered when the operator is pushing the lever down with his foot.

Another new feature: An optimized hold-down device with ideal material guidance on both sides fixes the copper bars to the table during the cutting process.
