At approximately 11:00 a.m. on September 1, 2010, Employee #1 was using a Cincinnati Hydraulic Press brake, Model Number 90AFX8 and Serial Number 45748, to press rail fillers. The ISB-Pro Programmable Beam Blackout light curtain was working, but was not relaying actions to the press brake. A jumper had been removed from the press brake controls causing the press brake not to read the light curtains signals. Employee #1 caught his finger between the die and rail filler. He was taken to Marshalltown hospital and then transferred to Mary Greeley Hospital, where his right thumb was amputated. He was hospitalized for his injury.
