Machine & Process Safeguarding

Safety Components are required for safety countermeasures in equipment and facilities. They are used for shut-out detection of mechanical guards, checking intrusion into hazardous areas, and building safety circuits. Today, forward-thinking manufacturers clearly realize the new role of increased safety on the factory floor.

  • Recently adopted international safety standards have shifted the way systems are evaluated
  • Safety is a corporate responsibility, not an obstruction to productivity
  • Safety is essential to increased productivityand profitability
