Safety Systems

SPOKO Integrators Ltd. provided an entire Safety Systems for an industrial robot. One of the challenges this system presented was ensuring no cycle time interruption while maintaining a high level of safety for workers replenishing material. To achieve this condition Spoko created three safety zones. To load one of the two stacks the operator had to request permission within the system, enabling one of the zones and blocking the robot from operating in the zone where product was going to be replenished. The robot was also outfitted with additional safety switches to monitor the position of the arm thus confirming safety of the operators.
