With a focus on safety technology and a rigorous Functional Safety Life Cycle approach, machine builders can harness the inherent value of intelligent safety system designs, enabling them to get their machines to market faster, reduce design labour time and costs, and ultimately increase the bottom line. For their customers, this means not only delivering safer, flexible, high-performance machines at a competitive price, but also equipping them with current safety control features such as safe off, safe speed and safe networks that improve performance and reduce their costs.
Safety can be built into machines upfront at less cost and effort than traditional add-on solutions with products that meet global standards for reliability, stability and quality. Conducting a risk assessment at the earliest stages of design allows machine builders to more effectively eliminate or minimise hazards that require guarding.
Rockwell Automation machine safety consultants can assist machine builders at any stage of a safeguarding project from training, standards assistance, risk and hazard assessments and circuit evaluations to system architecture development, system and hard-guarding design, validation and startup.
Rockwell Automation has the experience and proven capability to work with equipment manufacturers as their automation partner for each stage of their machine’s lifecycle from design, through development, to customer delivery and beyond.
