    Modular safety solution for food processing machines [les mer]

    In the food industry, however also in other sectors of machinery manufacture, flexibility is becoming an increasingly important characteristic of machines and systems. At the same time businesses
    favour safety systems that provide operational efficiency and cost advantages in addition to the essential safety function. An example of how these requirements can be implemented is
    demonstrated by the sliced meats processing system, manufactured by market and technology leader Weber Maschinenbau, which is made safe using a modular safety controller from Schmersal.
    The service package included the commissioning and validation of the system by tec.nicum, Schmersal’s service division.
