Operator Safety:

Operator safety and adherence to AS-4024 are the most important aspect of robot cell design, period. Setting up a safe environment needs to be done right, and it can have significant effects on available floor space. At Automated Solutions Australia, our FANUC range offer intelligent safety solutions that keep costs and floor space requirements to a minimum, while keeping workers, robots, and tools extremely safe. Robots can be inbuilt with sensors to locate people or other objects. If a person impedes on a working area, inbuilt sensors can halt the cell’s function, or in the case of a cobot, reduce the working speed to predefined safe levels. Software features like collision guard can also be installed. Work cells, which isolate the robot from humans, can also be used to house industrial robots.
