Make your packaging machines safe with sensors from Pilz

Sensor technology products

Our comprehensive range covers numerous applications in the range of sensor technology and it protects the operator personnel from hazardous movements. If an active intervention into the protection process is required, for example, our light curtains provide the ideal finger, hand or body protection. If the position of rolling doors and covers it to be monitored, our safety and proximity switches can be used. For guard locking and safeguarding safety gates, we offer our modular safety gate system. Another option to safeguard hazardous areas is the use of tactile sensors such as the pressure-sensitive mat or 2D and 3D monitoring using the safe camera systems from Pilz.

Safety for man and machine with safe control technology from Pilz

Use our safe control technology from Pilz to sustainably minimise the risk to man and machine. Depending on the scope and complexity of individual requirements, we offer you the suitable solution. Use PNOZ relays when monitoring a low number of safety functions in less complex applications. If there are more safety functions to be monitored, it is possible to use the configurable small control systems PNOZmulti. On large plants with high complexity and numerous safety functions we offer you the freely programmable automation system PSS4000.

Safe and energy-efficient drive technology for the packaging industry

Drive technology products

You can use our servo drive technology and out core competency "Safe Motion" to implement the automation of your packaging plants safely and efficiently. Through the modular drive concept it does not matter whether it is a retrofit or a new installation of a machine. With the Motion Control control systems we offer you safe drive solutions for synchronising several axes or single-axis solutions. Use our modern servo amplifiers as a drive controller for operating the most various motor technologies, such as servo motors or asynchronous motors and linear motors. Our complete program of servo motors including the diverse accessories offer the right solution for your motion tasks.

Professional operating & monitoring of your machine processes

Control and signal devices are used where hazardous situations can occur for your employees. To prevent hazards we offer you a comprehensive range of emergency stop pushbuttons. Our control devices and enabling switches can safeguard work in the hazardous area of a machine. To select operating modes and to regulate the access authorisation we offer our operating mode selector switches. With our PMIs we offer a comprehensive range from diagnostic device to visualisation panels with own software through to the control terminal. A professional diagnostics and visualisation of your plants reduces downtimes and thereby improves cost-effectiveness.
