Service Solutions to Keep Packaging Employees Safe, According to Pilz Automation Safety L.P.

CANTON, MI--(Marketwire - Oct 26, 2011) - Safe packaging machines increase the productivity of people as well as the machines themselves. Packaging companies that implement a rigorous safety policy have been proven to be more successful in the marketplace. Existing plants must be regularly checked and evaluated.

The packaging industry is experiencing ever shorter innovation cycles and increasing pressure from the competition. Customers are demanding more flexible machines, so that production can be switched to other products or packaging at short notice.

Pilz supports packaging companies throughout the world with a broad portfolio of services, from risk assessment to the complete implementation of safety solutions. Pilz prepares individual, coordinated safety guidelines and documentation, which can be used to examine safety within a company and to formulate safety-related strategies. Safety concept and validation are two important services Pilz offers for packaging companies.

Safety concept is a service Pilz offers to keep employees safe. Packaging plants are often modified or expanded during the course of their lifecycle. These upgrade or expansion measures require adjustments to the safety concept of the plant. Based on the results of the risk assessment, Pilz works out detailed technical solutions for a company in compliance with national and international standards.

Validation is when all safety upgrades are tested. Following the new installation, conversion and upgrade of machines, you should ensure that the production process of your packaging machine complies with the required safety standards.

As an experienced partner when it comes to safe automation, Pilz offers attractive consulting and engineering services. Pilz creates a complete safety concept for companies to optimize control technology on request, perform risk assessments and CE certifications. Pilz is accredited by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS) as an inspection body for plant and machinery.
