Join us TOMORROW and learn the most efficient, safest methods of operating folding and roll forming equipment. Our next METALCONLive! will feature industry expert and MCA Member, Chandler Barden with CIDAN Machinery, to review the necessary operating steps for various types of metal forming machinery.
Presenter: Chandler Barden, National Sales Director of CIDAN Machinery
Safety and efficiency go hand in hand. When equipment is safely operated, the machinery and its operator are working at their best. In this session, operators, and foreman will gain a complete understanding of the most efficient, safest methods of operating folding and roll forming equipment. Using equipment are the exhibitors and presenters from CIDAN Machinery and Bradbury. They will cover the necessary operating steps for various types of metal forming machinery. Through a combination of classroom and hands on methods, participants will go through each step: Initial inspection of the machines, location of e-stops and machine halt functions. What happens in an e-stop and the steps to take in an emergency. When to stop and restart the equipment. Safe handling of materials and parts, including the correct way to load and unload and what to check before you load. Proper shut down and clean up measures. Second operator procedures will also be covered so when two people are involved each one knows their respective responsibilities.
