Safety design for machinery safety

The third step to machinery safety: Safety design

Pilz safety designs are developed based on your requirements. They consider potential hazards at an early stage. We make sure that the implementation has minimal impact on the costs and productivity of your plant and machinery.

Your requirements

Safety designs in the machine lifecycle

When building from new, retrofitting or converting machinery in particular, subsequent costs are a regular feature, as are poor machine availability or even plant failures. You can actively counter these with a detailed safety design. Reduce and eliminate identified hazards. Alongside a detailed assessment of the necessary protective measures, any foreseeable human errors should also be considered.

Pilz safety designs are developed based on your requirements.
