How Can You Improve Productivity "On the Line?"

How Can You Improve Productivity "On the Line"

In manufacturing, if you see a conveyor, there is a high probability that you will also see cable pull switches.  

Cable pulls perform an important function in the emergency stopping of a line.  A line may need to be stopped for any number of reasons; some of those reasons include, but are not limited to:

  • Personal Safety
  • Machine Safety
  • Product Damage
  • Package Controls

While cable pulls are often mandatory, they can potentially cause problems that could have a negative impact on productivity.  Some of those problems include:

  • Increased Installation Time
  • Nuisance Trips
  • Tension Adjustments
  • Longer Cable Runs
  • Locating Trip Locations

Wouldn't it be nice to have a more efficient cable pull switch?

Well, now we do!  Rockwell Automation's Guardmaster LifeLine 5 eliminates all the problems mentioned above with one switch!
