New signs help molders keep shops safe

'Safety first' is the watchword in any good plastics processing facility. Injection molders keen to keep their employees' minds on safety might want to consider investing in some of these signs, designed to be mounted on molding machinery or some other highly visible location near a press.

safety signs for injection molding machinery
The signs are marketed by Danray Products LLC (Rockford, IL), which markets safety products for a wide variety of manufacturing industries. This U.S. Copyright Office-registered safety sign addresses the hazards created by moving platens and molds on injection molding machines.

The signs, sized 8¾" W x 10½" H, comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.145 and the ANSI Z535 standards for the design, application, and use of signs, colors, and symbols for accident prevention. Danray's Ryan Ebens told PlasticsToday that the signs are fabricated from polyester that is 0.002" thick, with a high-bond-strength acrylic adhesive back by 3M that has excellent chemical resistance and holding strength even at high temperatures (up to 350°F).

Danray designs its signs but fabrication is contracted out to a sign and nameplate company.
