Robotics Safety Systems

Robotics Safety Systems  – According to Robotic Industries Association (RIA) report, there are about 5,000 injuries every year from welding work. More and more robots are making it safer by performing some of these dangerous tasks.

Top 10 Robotics Safety Procedures

Robotic safety procedures are important to prevent accidents and injuries in workplaces. Here are some general robotic safety procedures to consider:

  1. Risk Assessment: Conduct a risk assessment to identify potential hazards associated with the robotic system, including the robot itself, the work area, and surrounding equipment.

  2. Safety Guards: Install safety guards around the robot to prevent access to the hazardous area.

  3. Emergency Stop: Install an emergency stop button within easy reach of the operator, which should immediately stop the robot in case of any emergency.

  4. Safe Distance: Ensure a safe distance between the robot and the operator by setting up barriers or using sensors to monitor the position of the operator.

  5. Regular Maintenance: Conduct regular maintenance on the robotic system to ensure it is functioning correctly.

  6. Proper Training: Train operators and maintenance personnel on the proper use and maintenance of the robotic system.

  7. Warning Signs: Display clear warning signs around the robot to alert personnel to potential hazards.

  8. Lockout/Tagout Procedures: Implement lockout/tagout procedures to prevent unauthorized access to the robotic system during maintenance or repair.

  9. Appropriate Clothing: Require personnel to wear appropriate clothing, including gloves, eye protection, and clothing that is fitted and not loose.

  10. Emergency Response Plan: Develop an emergency response plan that outlines procedures in the event of an accident or injury involving the robotic system.

It is important to note that these procedures may vary depending on the type of robot, its application, and the environment in which it is used. Therefore, it is crucial to consult with experts and refer to the robot manufacturer’s safety guidelines before implementing any safety procedures.

TOP 5 Robotic Integrator Measures when Installing a robot

However, robotics safety needs to be improved because many accidents actually happen during the robot programming, robot maintenance, and testing phases or when the staff interacts directly with the robot.

The top 5 safety standards procedures for robotics operations are:

  1. Perimeter guarding or robot cell,
  2. operation locks,
  3. laser scanners,
  4. Safety mats,
  5. and safety light curtains

It is important that the systems integrator knows all safety procedures and requirements.  A reliable robot integrator follows all robot cell safety standards. What else an integrator can do for you?

Why choose a good Robotic system integrator?

  1. The first thing an integrator should do is set up a meeting to establish the company’s needs and objectives.
  2. They look at the customer’s current process, focusing on cost reductions and production requirements.
  3. They make sure that the robotic systems have been thoroughly tested to avoid future problems.
  4. A Robotic Integrator will help you to get the best quality robotic automation.
  5. Project management of all the stages from design to commissioning.
  6. An Integrator provides high-quality documentation
  7. Project delivery on time.
