New services package from Pilz to evaluate machinery safety - conformity at a glance

With “Machinery Safety Evaluation” (MSE), the automation expert Pilz offers a new service to evaluate the machinery safety of existing machines. Operators obtain a simple, fast overview of the safety and conformity status of their machines via a dashboard. As a result, Pilz is providing a particularly efficient addition to the comprehensive risk assessment or plant assessment in its services package.

The “Machinery Safety Evaluation” service comprises the on-site evaluation of machinery in a production plant with regard to the applicable safety and conformity requirements. In the process, Pilz not only takes into account the standards and directives applicable at the machine's place of use or destination, but, on request, can also consider the customers' individual, in-house specifications. The result: operators can view the current conformity status of each plant or machine at a glance, on a clear, comprehensive software-based dashboard. A list of measures with the appropriate recommended actions – sorted by priority – indicates an efficient route to a safe plant. On request, Pilz can provide support when implementing these measures. 

The “Machinery Safety Evaluation” is aimed at operators who wish to have the safety and conformity of their existing machinery evaluated efficiently, for full staff and liability protection. The fast, simple Machinery Safety Evaluation by Pilz's experts is also appropriate for machines that are to be checked for potential retrofit measures or bought-in machinery.

Two levels of technical detail

Pilz offers two levels of detail for its “Machinery Safety Evaluation”, depending on the customer's individual requirement. While level 1 checks the conformity of the safety status and lists recommended actions to reduce risk, level 2 also includes an evaluation of the main risks and reviews the documentation. If required, our experts produce a conformity overview in accordance with specific company specifications, evaluate the maximum achievable performance level PLr for the tested subfunctions and, as an option, also provide a cost estimate for a potential upgrade. If operators use a machine type at several locations, this is interesting: the results for one machine can be transferred to similar machines. So, with “Machinery Safety Evaluation”, operators receive a particularly efficient conformity assessment.
