Soar with the spirit of safety!
‘Safety’ refers to the functional safety of machines, or in other words: protecting people and the environment from threats that may emanate from machines. Many accidents and their consequential costs can be avoided if targeted safety functions are considered and implemented right from the start. Production costs from material damage, damage to tools and machinery or production delays due to safety incidents can all be avoided.
Furthermore, the desire for safety is a basic human need. A safe workplace environment allows for employees to have a peace of mind and be more productive. Processes and workflows can therefore be more effective. The implementation of safe technology in the automation processes also facilitate troubleshooting when the systems are down. All these contribute to long-lasting effects on the success of your organization.
Future of Safe Automation
As automation processes and manufacturing are moving towards industrie 4.0 and beyond, incorporating safe technology can open the doors to future possibilities. As the complexity of tasks increases, digitalization and exchange of data is crucial in production process. There is a demand for Human and Robot Collaboration (HRC), where robot systems perform physically strenuous or monotonous tasks while humans manage sophisticated tasks.
Pilz is part of shaping the future of robotics and is committed to the integration of service and industrial robotics. In this dynamic environment, Pilz has not only created service robotics modules but also a modular system, that allows users to have the flexibility to assemble their own robotic applications. With emphasis on automation and safety, Pilz creates efficient solutions for the factory of the future.
