By affixing the CE marking on a product signifies that the manufacturer or authorized representative declares that the product complies with the applicable European Union (EU) directives and regulations, demonstrating its conformity to essential health, safety, and environmental requirements.

No, the CE marking does not necessarily mean that a product is manufactured in the European Union (EU). The CE marking is primarily an indication of compliance with European Union product safety and conformity standards, not a statement of the product’s country of origin. That product may have been manufactured anywhere in the world.

Your product requires CE marking depends on several factors, including the type of product, its intended use, and the applicable European Union (EU) directives or regulations. CE marking is mandatory for products falling under specific categories within the EU, the European Economic Area (EEA), and certain other countries that have adopted European product safety standards.

Yes, a Technical File is a comprehensive document evidence that contains all the relevant technical information and documentation needed to demonstrate that your product complies with the essential requirements outlined in the applicable European Union (EU) directives or regulations.

A “Declaration of Conformity” is a formal document issued by the manufacturer, distributor, or authorized representative of a machine. It states that the product complies with the essential requirements and relevant standards set out in applicable directives or regulations in the European Union.

The key difference between CE and UKCA marking is their regulatory authority. CE marking is associated with EU regulations and was used within the EU and EEA, while UKCA marking is specific to the UK and is used for products sold in Great Britain.

Machine Guards are physical barriers placed in proximity to industrial machines that contribute to the safety of operators in the work area. These devices are designed to prevent access to the hazardous parts of the machine and reduce the risk of injuries. Additionally, they can protect equipment from damage caused by accidental collisions and maintain separation between high-risk work areas and surrounding ones.

The use of Machine Guards is one of the prevention and protection measures indicated by the Risk Analysis.

Machine Point Guards are physical barriers placed directly on the machine itself around its moving parts, so as to prevent access to hazardous areas and reduce the risk of injuries. Perimeter Machine guarding like Fences, on the other hand, are physical barriers placed around the machine but not directly on it.

Yes. Machine Protections are made in full compliance with the EN ISO 14120 Standard (and the equivalent ANSI/RIA R15.06 and JIS B 9716), which establishes the «General requirements for the design and construction of fixed and movable guards». They are designed to be positioned according to the «Safety distances to prevent reaching hazardous areas with upper and lower limbs» outlined in the EN ISO 13857 Standard.

Machine Safety Guards complying with regulations are designed, manufactured, and tested according to the highest Safety Standards. In addition to contributing to the protection of operators, investing in compliant and high-quality Machine Guards can prevent fines, sanctions and production stops.

Physical industrial Machine Guards can be made from various materials such as steel, aluminium, polycarbonate, etc. The choice depends on several factors, such as the production context or environmental conditions. It is important to consult qualified professionals to determine the most suitable material to use according to these needs.

Machine Guards find application in a wide range of sectors, such as paper, wood, glass, steel, plastic, bottling and packaging. Specific sector needs are paramount in determining the features of the chosen protection. Food, chemical, and pharmaceutical industries, for example, require the use of Guards that fulfil high hygiene standards.

Periodic cleaning and inspection of the Machine Guards are strongly recommended to prevent damage or malfunctions. The replacement of any worn or damaged parts must be done immediately to ensure worker safety and minimize potential machine downtime.

To determine the cost per meter of a given Fence, it is necessary to define some fundamental information, such as: panels/posts size and finish; the System used; number and type of doors; etc. A Safety Fencing Solution is made of several different products and, therefore, its cost depends on several factors.

The opening of the mesh allows to install framed Guards at a minimum distance of 120 mm from hazard (as per EN ISO 13857, – «Access through regular openings»). This reduces the amount of space occupied by the safety perimeter.

Perimeter Fences are designed to be installed easily. The time required for installing our screens depends on several factors, including the size of the area to be protected, the type of system used, the chosen accessories and complements, or the level of customization required.

yes. Each Order includes Assembly Instructions of the purchased systems and products to guide you step-by-step in the assembly of your Safety perimeter.

A common approach in the design of safety related circuits is to series connect devices with potential free contacts , e.g. multiple interlocking devices connected to a single safety logic controller which performs the diagnostics for the overall safety function. Although in such applications a single fault will, in most cases, not lead to the loss of the safety function and will be detected, in practice, problems sometimes occur. It is foreseeable that more than one moveable guard will be open at the same time or in a sequence, e.g- due to subsequent fault finding procedure or as part of the regular operation of the machine. Due to the serial connection of the contacts, faults in the wiring or contacts detected by the logic unit may be masked by the operation of one of the other(not-faulty) in series connected device. As a result, the operation of the machine is possible while a single fault is present in the SRP/CS. This can, in consequences, allow the accumulation of faults leading to an unsafe system.

To avoid fault masking of interlocking devices with potential free contacts, the following methods can be applied –

  • Use additional contacts individually connected to a monitoring device in combination with appropriate diagnostic procedures to avoid fault masking.
  • Avoid connecting in series of interlocking devices and use individual safety inputs for each interlocking device.
  • Use interlocking devices with internal diagnostics and monitored outputs.

A CE marked electrical panel conforming to EN 60204-1 signifies that it complies with the safety and electrical standards outlined in the directive and meets the requirements for safe operation of machinery.

Safety features often include circuit protection, emergency stop controls, proper insulation, isolation, and protection against electric shock.

Yes, CE marked electrical panels can be customized to suit the specific electrical and control requirements of various industrial machines and processes.

Using electrical panels without the required CE marking in the EU can lead to legal consequences and non-compliance with safety regulations.

Safety PLCs are designed to handle safety-related tasks and are certified to meet specific safety standards. They offer redundancy, self-checking, and diagnostic features to enhance reliability and safety.

Yes, Safety PLCs are highly customizable, allowing engineers to tailor safety logic and functions to meet the unique safety needs of a particular application.

Yes, Safety PLCs can often be retrofitted into existing systems to enhance safety and compliance with modern safety standards.

A safety door switch, also known as a safety interlock switch, is a device used to enhance safety by monitoring and controlling access to machinery and equipment through doors, gates, or panels.

Safety door switches play a crucial role in preventing accidents by ensuring that equipment cannot operate when a door or access point is open, reducing the risk of injuries and damage.

Mechanical switches use physical contact (e.g., with a tongue or hinge) to detect door position, while non-contact switches use sensors, such as magnetic or RFID technology, to detect door status without physical contact.

Safety door switches for hazardous locations may require additional certifications, such as ATEX or IECEx, to ensure compliance with safety standards in specific hazardous environments.
