Electrical safety in machine tool manufacturing

The new EN ISO 14120

The new EN ISO 14120 affects nearly all machine manufacturers. This machinery directive states that the safety objectives of the low voltage directive must be complied with. Bender supports this by providing the appropriate monitoring equipment. Fire safety in machines is often neglected, but forms part of the statutory safety strategy requirements. This is guaranteed by the Bender RCM range.
