Safety is critical, especially in today’s fast-paced and high-volume manufacturing facilities. Much of the machinery used for automated processes operate at high speeds and presents a series of risks to workers, including amputation, crushed fingers and hands, burns, and other injuries. There are also safety hazards associated with forklifts and other machinery moving throughout a facility.

Machine safety devices include emergency stops, safety controllers, light curtains, and other equipment designed to help improve efficiency, prevent injuries, and ensure compliance with safety standards. These devices work with your other automation and instrumentation devices to alert workers of hazards and restrict access to unsafe areas.
