Lazersafe System Iris Optical Imaging Technology

The state of the art in combining safety, productivity and precision

IRIS and IRIS Plus optical systems incorporate an integrated real-time image processor that is contained within the receiver unit. Our optical imaging technology provides greater flexibility for press brake manufacturers by combining high-performance optical protection with real-time image processing capabilities.

Bend Speed Management (BSM):

As combination systems, both IRIS and IRIS Plus models provide highperformance optical protection while the tools are closing at high speed, then once the bending process starts, the image processing functions take over. During bending, the systems take and process images in real-time and transfer live data to the CNC system via SmartLink. As the image data processing system is completely contained within the IRIS and IRIS Plus receivers, no additional processing hardware or software is required.

The European press brake standard EN12622 mandates that bending speed be restricted to 10mm/s. This speed restriction provides a general level of safety by managing the speed at which the material facing toward the operator moves during bending.

However in the machinery directive and EN12622 there are clauses that provide a basis for faster bending speeds with wider V dies, provided certain operations can be properly monitored. In the CNC system the manufacturer can set a faster bend speed for larger width V dies and to facilitate a safe condition for faster bending, the Bend Speed Management process provides automatic monitoring of the speed at which the material facing the operator moves through its bending arc.
