CNC Gantry Mill with Fanuc control PUWER Project





Guard-Tech upgrades Gantry Mills to PUWER Compliance

Guard-Tech has just successfully completed the PUWER upgrade of the first of many large, long bed single and double CNC Gantry Mills machining wing spars for a large group of Company’s in the aviation industry. All machines were PUWER assessed and PUWER reports provided showing none compliance issues, photographic evidence of none compliance, PUWER assessments and risk assessment/ risk reduction.

The machines were redesigned with totally enclosed interlocked guarding systems and fitted with travelling operator stations which were totally enclosed and interlocked. An auxiliary operating station and Castell key system was used to enable the machine to become a man-less operating area during long programming cycles thus preventing any access to rotating parts, ejection of materials and entrapment issues previously identified during the PUWER assessment. 

The 2nd, third and 4th machines are now underway and will be completed by the end of the year.

The Directors of the business have worked long and hard to secure this contract over a number of years and are very pleased with the final project and have been congratulated on the timescale, professionalism and management of the project by the customer.
