Automation Robotics Safety Systems

With more and more manufacturing plants becoming robotically controlled, ensuring both operator and machinery safety is paramount.

As highlighted in the recent tragic event at the Volkswagen Plant whereby a man was crushed by robot on the production line, this has highlighted the need to ensure all necessary steps are in place to provide a safe solution.

In all industrial robotic systems there are numerous safe guards in place to prevent such mishaps with the aim to cover all eventualities. Most common forms of industrial accidents occur due to shortcuts in operator practices whereby a manual override of the safety system can lead to tragic consequences. To ensure that these events do not occur, most systems will have backup safety systems in place, so even with a manual override the system will still be safe.

Whether you are looking to upgrade your safety systems to ensure you meet compliance standards or are looking at ways of expanding your existing system, at More Control we have the right solution for you.

More Control working with OEMs is able to provide a complete turnkey solution in robotics to provide a safe, efficient solution tailored to your needs.
