Robot Safety

In implementing a robot cell, one of the major considerations must be the safety of operators and people working in the area as modern robots are almost silent in operation and are very fast. The only acceptable way to make robots safe is to exclude people from the robot working area which is achieved by the use of safety fences, light curtains and doors with interlock switches. All systems need to be supplied with approved safety fencing with entry/exit guards and a safety key lock system.

The cost of making robot cells safe can be considerable and can make a large difference to the cost justification for a project.
