Lasermet Laser Jailer: The Active Laser Guarding System with Inherent Fail Safe Technology

Laser Jailer

This photograph shows three enclosures housing a 16kW fibre laser which is distributed to three robots - one in each separate room within the enclosure. ICS-15XM Laser interlock controllers can be seen adjacent to the doors.

The Laser Jailer active laser guarding system combines an inherently fail-safe laser detection technique and Lasermet's proven laser interlock control system technology to create an active laser guarding system which is fail safe to Machinery Directive Standard EN13849-1.

The system is designed to contain a high powered laser beam in a laser enclosure which is smaller and lighter than would otherwise be necessary. It comprises of an outer passive enclosure and an inner active enclosure made up of detector tiles which are connected to Lasermet's ICS interlock system.

Lasermet's fail-safe technology isolates the laser safety input in less than 50ms. The laser machine responds to this laser termination signal and laser radiation is terminated – the actual laser termination time being dependent on the laser machine in use.

Lasermet: High Integrity Laser Safety Beam Shutter

The Lasermet LS-20 Laser Safety Shutter is intended to provide a means of preventing accidental exposure to a potentially harmful laser beam. It has been designed to form part of a high-integrity safety system and features a gravity-close blade and force-disconnect proving contacts. When closed, the shutter deflects the incoming laser beam onto an internal beam dump where the energy is converted to heat which is dissipated in the aluminium casing of the shutter. When the shutter is open, the laser beam passes through the shutter without interruption.

Lasermet CE Marked Laser-Blocking Screens

Lasermet laser blocking screens 

To protect personnel from Class 4 and Class 3B lasers it is imperative to have comprehensive laser safety protection in place. Laser radiation must be prevented from escaping from labs and manufacturing facilities using certified equipment. Also, facilities utilising Class 1 lasers which are Class 4 under service conditions may require free-standing screens to allow other work to continue safely in the same room during service.

Lasermet provide a range of free-standing laser-blocking screens which are designed for use as passive guards to enclose areas where Class 3B or Class 4 lasers are in use either to protect against accidental exposure to the laser beam or for long term blocking of laser radiation at lower power densities. All Lasermet laser-blocking screens are CE marked and certified to EN 60825-4 (Safety of Laser Products Part 4: Laser Guards).

 

Lasermet Laser Castle - rapid-build, modular laser safety cabins

passive laser safety enclosure

Lasermet's laser safety cabins protect personnel from the dangers of high powered laser beams by absorbing the laser power in the specially designed walls and roof.

These modular, Class 1, room-sized enclosures are tested and certified to international laser safety standards (IEC 60825-4 Safety of Laser Products Part 4 - Laser Guards) and can be rapidly designed, built and installed by Lasermet.

They are supplied with Lasermet's interlock control system and high quality, dual message, dual colour, low voltage, illuminated LED signs. Lasermet's audible warning sign (the Audio Alert) can also be installed. A CCTV system covers the operation inside the cabin and provision is made for fume extraction, making this a cost effective and extremely easy method of enclosing the laser system, which then complies to international laser safety standards.

Introducing Glaser Jailer: Lasermet's Active Laser Safety Window

glaser

Lasermet's Active Laser Safety Window, known as the Glaser Jailer, is a failsafe safety system that enables high powered lasers to be switched off virtually immediately if the laser beam inadvertently strikes the window.

Usually fitted into the panels or doors of the Laser Castle (Laser Safety Cabin), Glaser Jailer is connected to the interlock control system to enable laser welding operations to be viewed safely from outside the cabin.

This enables multi-kilowatt lasers (up to 10kW) used for welding, cutting and cladding to be made safe, preventing harm to personnel and preventing damage to surrounding infrastructure. The Glaser Jailer window is suitable for all laser powers, wavelengths and waveforms.

Integrated into Lasermet's Laser Jailer active laser guarding system, it provides a complete active solution. Currently in operation worldwide, this revolutionary active, patented technology is already tested and proven.
