With increased levels of automation, it is more important than ever to ensure that humans and machines operate smoothly and safely within the warehouse environment. Safe automation expert, Pilz, has recently been applying its wealth of experience to intralogistics applications, taking a holistic approach with its portfolio of safety services, training and safe automation solutions.
In key areas such as automated loading systems, Pilz consultants can work with customers to achieve safety compliance – without compromising productivity. Getting on board as early as the design phase, when the system concept is developed, the company provides support for new projects or retrofits right through to commissioning and sign-off.
State-of-the-art product solutions are also available incorporating control and sensor technology through to operating, monitoring and connectivity. These include access management solutions, such as ensuring tasks such as maintenance can only be carried out by authorised and trained personnel. They also include industrial security, so preventing manipulation of systems by external sources, danger zone protection (bringing operations to a safe stop or safe speed if the zone is encroached by personnel), and safe operation of AGV or AMR systems (enabling safe stopping or navigation and interaction within shared workspaces).
In addition to exhibiting its solutions, Pilz will be running two seminars at Intralogistex 2022 – ‘Safety compliance in the intralogistics arena’ and ‘Solutions for safe automation in the intralogistics arena’.
