Spot welder and riveter operators often need to hold parts close to moving electrodes or riveting tips where fingers can be caught between the tips, resulting in amputations and other bodily damage.
To help prevent these injuries, Rockford Systems, LLC. has partnered with Unitrol Electronics, Inc. to provide sales, installation and technical support for the Soft Touch Pinch-Point Safety System. This 100% passive, fail-safe system stops riveters, spot welders and other small machines from applying full force when it detects fingers in the point-of-operation area, while not interfering with or slowing down the production process during normal operations.
Rockford Systems will present a live, complimentary webinar titled "How the Soft Touch Pinch-Point Safety System helps prevent riveter and welder injuries" to better introduce the many advantages of the system. The webinar is scheduled for Monday, July 23, 2018 from 10:00-11:00 AM CDT. Roger Hirsch, president of Unitrol Electronics and the inventor of the Soft Touch system, will host this informative seminar. Mr. Hirsch will provide an overview of the Soft Touch, as well as compare it to other pinch-point safeguarding devices, such as the Detect-A-Finger, also available from Rockford Systems.
