A single source machine guarding solution

Oji Fibre Solutions

Project Scope

Oji Fibre Solutions operate a facility in Auckland manufacturing corrugated cardboard packaging products. An internal audit highlighted a potential safety risk to staff. As a responsible employer, CHH swiftly sought a machine guarding solution.

The CR Automation Solution

Working in conjunction with our strategic partner, DSK Engineering, we were able to offer CHH a turn-key solution.
We designed and installed fixed and interlocked guarding, and a fully integrated safety upgrade of existing machinery control systems. This included safety curtains, trapped keys, adding additional contactors to existing motor controls, the addition of a safety PLC with full diagnostics via the existing HMI. The safety fencing was custom designed and fabricated to suit the various spaces and levels which couldn't be provided by an off-the-shelf fencing system.

The results

A custom-designed and purpose built safe working environment, implemented over weekends with no impact on production.
