Machine safety that fits!

Machine safety

Those who want to equip their machines and plants have to take care of many things: the right automation components, space-saving wiring, engineering and, last but not least, the integration of safety functions. It is not uncommon for suppliers to be unable to solve all the various tasks on their own. So the task of safety in particular often becomes: stress. With Safety Integrated, Siemens offers tailor-made solutions for the many different challenges within automation. Personal consulting, coordinated components, custom-fit configuration and accompanying service: Safety has never felt so comfortable!

How can you safely monitor specified kinematic motions in space? Our experts Daniel Hübner and Thomas Kahabka discuss this in an expert talk and give interesting insights.

Safety Consulting in action

Safety Consulting in action - implementing functional machine safety quickly, effectively and legally compliant​

The machine has been designed and is currently being built. Now all that is missing is the declaration of conformity and the CE mark. But there is more effort behind these two terms than one might initially suspect. They require a documented process of risk assessment and risk reduction.​

This is exactly where our Safety Consulting service comes in: We support you in optimizing existing processes in risk assessment and mitigation or in establishing new processes. In our webinar, we provide an overview of the individual process steps and demonstrate how we proceeded based on a real customer case.
