CPI Project - Counterbalanced Door Guard

Design Objectives:

  • Develop a custom guarding solution.
  • Guard must be easily moved out of the way to allow for routine machine maintenance and rigging.

Design Requirements:

  • Guarding must prevent any user from accessing machine while in place.
  • Maximum moving force of 20 lbs.

Project Description:

A client approached CPI design team to develop a guarding solution which could easily be moved out of the way to allow for quick access for operators to conduct routine rigging and maintenance of production machinery. CPI developed a custom guarding solution which was comprised of a fixed rigid frame that supported a vertically movable guard. Minimal strength was required to lift the guard due to the addition of a counterbalance system with hidden counter weights and pulley assemblies. On-site installation service was also provided to customer.
