Tapeswitch Corporation (Farmingdale, NY) manufactures pressure sensitive electrical bumpers, which most commonly have functioned as a safety device on many types of mobile, utility, and powered packaging equipment, including shuttles, transfer carts, lifts, pallet movers, and conveyors. In automation, shuttles and linear transfer alleys often create shear points. Sensing corner bumpers on shuttles can prevent injury and damage to people and objects at those points. Sensing bumpers are constructed with durable and resistant materials, which can withstand environmental conditions such as salt fog, says the company. The safety bumper solution consists of electrical switch, fail-safe wiring, internal materials, and a cover, and optional printed covers.
