ATTEND OUR OPEN HOUSE

Rockford Systems LLC welcomes students, educators, community and business leaders to learn about machine safeguarding and its important role in the manufacturing process at our Open House (Oct 6, 2017).  Attendees are invited to spend time at our Headquarters Training Center for a machine safety presentation and interactive demo, whereby you will learn about machine safeguarding from safeguarding specialists and experience 15 safeguarded metal-working machines operating under power.  These machines (including power presses, press brakes, an engine lathe, a Bridgeport drill, a drill press, a grinder, spot welders and a riveter) are equipped with more than one type of safeguarding product so that attendees can see how different guards and devices can be applied and used. 

At its Open House, Rockford Systems will be providing visitors with an overview of machine safeguarding, the focus of its business since 1971 when its founders introduced an easy-to-install package that allowed metal fabricators to meet new OSHA regulations safeguarding punch presses, hydraulic presses and press brakes. The company's focus, then and today, is to help prevent machine operator injuries and deaths. More than 18,000 injuries occur annually due to a lack of safeguarding equipment on machines and operator error. It is estimated that less than 50 percent of manufacturing machinery currently in us in the Unted States meets federal safety regulations.

Rockford Systems will be hosting five Open House sessions on October 6, starting at 8 am and running until 6 pm.  Attendees are invited to spend time at the Headquarters Training Center for a machine safety presentation and interactive demo, whereby attendees will learn about machine safety from safeguarding specialists and experience 15 safeguarded metal-working machines operating under power.  These machines (including power presses, press brakes, an engine lathe, a Bridgeport drill, a drill press, a grinder, spot welders and a riveter) are equipped with more than one type of safeguarding product so that attendees can see how different guards and devices can be applied and used.

 After the presentation, attendees are invited to network with safeguarding specialists and participate in the #selfieforsafety community service campaign, designed to raise student awareness of the importance of machine safeguarding and to help fund the upgrading of safety equipment in the machine shops of several public high schools in Rockford, Illinois.

 Attendees are required to wear closed-toe shoes and tie hair long hair back.  Safety glasses will be provided.
