Automation with robots

Safety without the need for protective fences

desma_teaser

With the help of safety laser scanners from the microScan3 product family as well as a Flexi Soft safety controller, DESMA guarantees the safe operation of a robot on an injection molding machine. The electro-sensitive protective devices allow ergonomic access to the machine for the purposes of process-orientated material staging and removal. The robot automatically picks up the raw material provided as soon as the safety perimeter is clear and dispenses the processed silicone and rubber parts. At the same time, the safety laser scanners are especially economical on space and therefore do not impede the process. Continue reading

Training at SICK: Functional Safety on machines

Functional Safety Engineer_Teaser

Even at the development and design stage of a machine, it is important to consider how it will ensure safety – all too often, accidents are the result of a failure to carry out adequate risk assessments in advance. When implementing and commissioning a machine, residual risks can be avoided by installing additional safety technology. Ultimately, the safety of machinery depends on the safety system operating correctly as well as other risk-reducing measures. This is where functional safety comes in. SICK offers the Functional Safety Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) training, designed to provide developers, designers, and operating entities with training in the field of functional safety and help them learn about the ways in which machine safety can be guaranteed.   Continue reading
