Pilz and Aida-America Corporation Work Together to Update Press Compliance

CANTON, MI--(Marketwire - December 22, 2010) - Standards are becoming the benchmark for business today, the Aida-America Corporation has utilized Pilz's PNOZMulti product group to bring their industrial presses up to standard compliance. The m2p configurable relay is used by the Aida-America Corporation to integrate higher safety and production standards into day-to-day operations of their large-scale equipment. By monitoring the status of status signals from major drive components, access gates and two-handed safety controls, the m2p gives Aida the ability to quickly and accurately monitor safety and run cycles. The m2p has the ability to do this with less down time than previous systems. The flexibility offered by the PNOZMulti products also give Aida the ability to shorten installation and start-up times resulting in more time being spent on processing customer jobs. As the company's needs grow, the m2p will give the company a higher degree of flexibility to change its overall safety configuration, allowing the press equipment to grow with the changing company and market demands.
