The seminar will present an overview of some international standards for machinery safety and their application. These standards offer the basic technical rules for the design of safe equipment for machine manufacturers, and it intends to transmit the primary knowledge of these standards and their use in industrial contexts to participants, all with practical application examples. Among the other speakers, Warmbier will present his own information as a professional expert in the standardization of machinery safety.

Functional Safety and Validation will be moderated by Klaus-Dieter Becker, the German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the energy, textile, electrical, and media industries (BGETEM) in Cologne. The two-day program includes a welcome address by Becker along with WSPS and ISSA representatives, and there will be lunch and coffee breaks to allow attendees to network, as well as room discussions of the content.

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.
