ABB has recently introduced a new series of podcasts that explore the innovative and exciting world of robotics, and their benefit to society in the greatest shift in automation in a generation, brought on by the pandemic.

Whether it’s collaborative robots working alongside humans in laboratories and SME businesses, or industrial robots working in large factories producing the next generation of electric vehicle, robots of all shapes and sizes are making work safer and more efficient for people and companies the world over. Each episode of the Robot Podcast features a panel of experts and takes an in-depth look at some of the most interesting global case studies.

Episode one will be available from today (the 17th of February) with a further five episodes landing each Wednesday thereafter, with more to follow later in 2021.

The Robot Podcast is hosted by TV presenter and engineering enthusiast, Fran Scott. She has worked with the BBC and Channel 4 in the UK, as well as the Royal Society of Chemistry and the British Science and Media Museum. Commenting on the Robot Podcast, Fran said: “Robots are revolutionizing productivity, flexibility and quality of life. Each episode, I’m joined by a fantastic panel of expert guests for an open and interesting talk exploring the cutting edge of robotics. From the exciting new world that robots are helping to build, to dissecting the challenges and opportunities that come with it.”

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
