The closer man and machine can work together, the more efficient work practices become. In this way you can combine the capabilities of people and the advantages of robots like their strength, stamina and speed. The new type of collaborative robot, known as cobots, allow humans and robots to share the same working space at the same time. A safety fence is no longer needed. This type of collaboration increasingly requires new technologies and solutions. What conditions need to be met to ensure injury-free interaction between human and machine? How is the CE marking conformity assessment procedure carried out? We show you everything you have to consider when examining an HRC application and what measures you have to take.
Safe human-robot collaboration (HRC)
- Basics of robot safety
- Safety solutions compliant with standards such as DIN EN ISO 10218-2 and ISO/TS 15066
- Risk assessments and safeguarding of collaborative robot systems
- Execution of risk assessments based on a sample application
- Significance of and need for validation
- Basic information about collision measurement
- Identification of measuring points and sensor positioning
- Collision measurement based on limit values of ISO/TS 15066
Your optimum route to qualification:
- Design engineering managers, technical engineering managers, design engineers
- Robot system integrators, programmers
- Safety officers
- Project engineers in production units
You will learn everything about the entire measuring method, including its implementation in accordance with ISO/TS 15066, in the workshop on the HRC collision measurement set PRMS.
Benefits to you
- Increase the efficiency of work processes by implementing safe human-robot collaboration.
- Learn about the application of relevant standards for your projects.
- Optimise your knowledge about the procedure to be followed as part of the risk assessment of robot systems.
AU Risk Assessment Workshop
The workshop equips the participants with the knowledge and skills to carry out risk assessments of machinery in accordance with AS/NZ 4024.1-2019 Safety of machinery. The risk assessment is necessary and a fundamental aspect of machinery safety, as well as the first step towards complying with the WHS regulations and standards. This workshop guides you through the risk assessment process for machinery with the aid of pictures and videos - it's always interactive and practically based. The objective is to identify hazards and perform risk evaluations (degree of harm and probability of occurrence). This training also covers how to apply appropriate risk reduction measures and determine the residual risk.
- Risk assessment legislation and standards
- Application of different evaluation methodologies:
- Hierarchy of control
- Remediation and residual risk
- Risk assessment best practices
- Practical examples in terms of several workshops for all participants
This course is suitable for:
- OHS professionals and workplace representatives
- Safety officers and specialists involved in workplace evaluation
- Project and design engineers
- Electrical and mechanical tradespeople
- Machinery importers and suppliers
- Those responsible for upgrades and maintenance of plant and machinery
