Safety concept for machinery

Combine safety and productivity

The second step to machinery safety: Safety concept

Pilz safety concepts are based on the individual requirements of the customer. Using our tried and tested methodologies, our safety concepts enable safe interaction between operators or maintenance personnel and machinery - without affecting productivity.

Your requirements

Intelligent and cost-effective safety concept

To remain competitive, as a manufacturer you need an effective, practicable safety concept when using new machinery or converting an existing machine. This must not restrict your machines’ productivity.

You need a safety concept that's individually tailored to your requirements. Of course, its implementation should not involve any unnecessary extra work.

With our safety concept you can optimise interaction between staff and machine.

Our services

The Pilz safety concept considers the safety of your machinery in accordance with national and international standards.

Based on the machine risk assessment that has already been carried out, the safety concept is where we develop detailed solution proposals for the technical implementation. That way we guarantee the safety of your machinery in accordance with national and international standards as well as your own corporate standards.
