Multi-layered technology protects material handling workers
April 8, 2019
ELOKON, a global leader in industrial safety technology, introduced its latest worker safety innovation in Chicago at the ProMat material handling show. It’s a Smart Safety Vest, packed with technology, for pedestrians who work around lift trucks.
The Smart Safety Vest works with ELOKON’s ELOshield proximity detection system, which uses UWB wireless technology to prevent vehicle-pedestrian (and vehicle-vehicle) collisions.
The most important machine design step is ensuring operator safety. During the design process, hazards are often identified that can be removed, but when a hazard cannot be removed, then various levels of safeguarding must be provided. These typically take the form of machine access guarding and point-of-operation guarding.
Safety knives are tools commonly used in stocking, shipping, receiving, manufacturing, restaurants, food service, construction, and many more places of employment. Almost all of these workers have to cut something during their workday- whether that be opening up packages or containers, cutting cartons, slicing shrink wrap, or performing general maintenance.
Robotic welding provides manufacturers with several competitive advantages. Most importantly, it makes them more productive while generating more consistent, higher quality welds and reducing waste. Robots also empower manufacturers to address the current shortage of skilled welders to recruit.
Pre-engineered robotic welding cells make automation available for a wide range of applications. Installing robots in facilities of all sizes can boost productivity by increasing weld speed, efficiency and quality. They also reduce cycle time by allowing a single operator to fixture the next piece while the robot welds.
