Relay From PILZ Sets Safety Standard – International Success Story

MC Relay from PILZ Sets Safety Standard 1 400x275

September 9, 2022

 

As part of modernization of the electrical and control technology for the whole machine portfolio at Advanced Engineering Industrie Automation, the company switched to PC-based control technology on the automation side. However, as the workspaces are enclosed, Advanced Engineering consciously decided against an integrated safety solution for the newly fitted safety technology.

Including on the “Peelmaster”: here, as with all the Austrian company’s other machines, the new type of modular safety relay myPNOZ – combined with safe sensor technology PSEN – emerged as the ideal solution for the safety concept, which has now been implemented successfully. 

 

myPNOZ as the heart of safety

myPNOZ offers Advanced Engineering exactly the modularity they were looking for: With the available expansion modules, all applications – E-STOP, safety gate switch with/without guard locking and light curtain – can be covered on the machines.

In addition to the myPNOZ, Advanced Engineering also uses sensor technology PSEN, including the safety switches PSENmag and PSENcode, the safety gate systems PSENslock or the safety light curtains PSENopt.

This new safety standard guarantees a reliable process for all the machines supplied – including the “Peelmaster” sheet remover, which is unique in its type. When the machine is set correctly, a miniscule error rate of well below 1 per cent is guaranteed!

The “Peeler’s” high precision process is designed to the very last detail, but above all is very reliable, and is guaranteed by the PILZ safety package.

Benefits at a glance

  • •Cost-optimized solution: the required function range can be covered with just one safety relay
  • •Maximum flexibility: the expansion modules of the myPNOZ enable all applications to be implemented
  • •In conjunction with safe sensor technology PSEN, myPNOZ establishes an individually tailored safety standard for all machines

 

Customer Statement

“Simplicity was the key argument for us: the myPNOZ offers exactly the modularity we need – we can cover all our applications with one relay and the available expansion modules. And thus create a safety standard that’s perfectly tailored to our requirements.”

-Manuel Bernhofer, Head of Automation Development at Advanced Engineering

 

About Advanced Engineering Industrie Automation

MC Relay from PILZ Sets Safety Standard 4 400x275

Just short of 25 staff are employed at the Hallein site of the Austrian company Advanced Engineering Industrie Automation: all core skills – from mechatronic development and design through to automation technology with software programming for control, visualization, SCADA and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) connection, including assembly and commissioning – are kept in-house.

Alongside different versions of peelers, the machine portfolio also includes devices for automatic loading, unloading, and handling of PCB products by robot arms, buffer systems, as well as line controllers for the automation of entire production lines.
