There are many benefits to automation, which today is used in many industries across the world. When you automate machines, or even entire manufacturing and production facilities, you not only simplify processes but also increase quality and productivity.
However, the safety aspect is very often neglected with industrial automation, and not just to the detriment of staff. Damage to materials and tools and the consequent downtimes are just some of the negative consequences. It’s worse still when people are injured.
Also, if state inspections establish that simple safety standards are not being met, then closure of the whole plant is inevitable. Quick and costly investments in safety measures will be needed to allow the plant to be put back into service.
With Pilz at your side as a partner, such cases can be avoided. We know which requirements are important for safe automation and are happy to support you with the implementation and solution. Because when it comes to complying with machinery safety requirements, many countries have regulations ranging from non-binding recommendations to mandatory laws. http://www.pilz.com
