Machine Guards

Machine Guarding is essential for the safety of your personnel. Australis can design a fully customised machine guard to suit an existing, in-situ piece of machinery or we can provide fully customised machine guards for new machines.

Fully Customised Design

Australis has a strong track record in designing, manufacturing and installing machine guards for key clients across all industry sectors. Using our 3D CAD software, our team of engineers can design a machine guard to suit your specific machinery that:

  • Will comply with new OHS regulations
  • Is user friendly, being easy to clean and access the machines for maintenance
  • Is efficient and safe for your personnel to use – both from the machine itself and operation of the guarding
  • Provides options to provide a full enclosure to the machinery to assist in eliminating product contamination.

Aluminium Profile Machine Guarding

Machine guarding can be simple or complex but using aluminium profile t-slot extrusions can make the task much easier and flexible and results in rapid fabrication of your machine guard. By combining modular sections of aluminium profile a complete assembly can be designed quickly and simply. By choosing a special “panel slot” aluminium profile, panels including clear poly-carbonate, solid composite materials or steel mesh can all be accommodated within the aluminium profile sections. We can even utilise a patented patented Rapid Panel Release System developed by our partners Alusic for easy removal of safety panels for maintenance, but yet which remains fully secure to maintain your full safety requirements.

Steel Machine Guarding

Aluminium not appropriate for your production environment? That’s ok we can also manufacture a fully customised machine guard in mild or stainless steel.

Quick Release Panel System

Quick-Release-Panels_closed_lrAs all Business Owners and Managers know, safety panels are now mandatory for most industrial machinery applications as either a machine guard to prevent personnel accidentally inserting their hand or limbs into a pinch point or cutting area; or to provide zoned safety fencing around a machinery cell. Aluminium profile is the most common material used to provide these mesh or polycarb safety panels, however there has always been a problem in removing these panels to undertake routine maintenance or cleaning. We have a solution – Australis can offer a revolutionary new quick release closure system for the rapid access and removal of aluminium profile safety panels.

Patented Quick Release Panels

Enter the patented Alusic quick release system! The Alusic safety release system is an innovative safety catch that allows for the rapid and safe removal of aluminium profile safety panels surrounding your machines or safety cells. Quick-Release-Panels_lrThe system is WHS compliant as you still require a tool to safely remove the panel.

Features:

  • Quick release/ refit using a standard allen key
  • Panels will automatically pop-out once catches are disengaged – no more pushing and pulling to remove the safety panel
  • Impossible to refit the panels in the wrong position
  • Impossible to lose the patented fix pin system
  • Easy visual inspection to ensure the safety panels are correctly installed
  • Integrates easily with electrical safety interlock switches
  • Compatible with all Alusic aluminium profiles and most other profiles – meaning you can retrofit the system easily to your existing panels

These innovative quick release catches are sold in kit form and include the 2x top, 2 x bottom hinges and 4x locking pins. Simply use your allen key to quickly and easily install these innovative quick release catches for aluminium profile safety screens.
