Safety Blocks are an OSHA requirement in the USA and need to be used whenever a press operator or setup or maintenance personnel has any body parts on or in the die or within the press platen area that could cause injury should the press activate. Proper procedures call for the use of die safety blocks in these instances, with the press locked-out.

Base pricing includes a 6″x6″ square base, extrusion, and adjustment assembly.
Standard Safety Blocks
These blocks are used when a customer doesn’t have a need for an adjustable block and just wants one fixed size. Aluminum or wood wedges are available as an added option to fill in any gaps. They can be built as small as a few inches up to many feet and depending on size can go up to 150 tons of load coverage.
Power Cut-Off System
In storage when the safety block is stored on the side of the press with the safety plug connected to the control circuit, the press is operative.
In use when the safety block is in the press bed area with the safety plug disconnected from the control circuit, the press is inoperative.
This system complies with OSHA Energy and CSA lockout regulations.
