If you have any problems related to system safety,
Supported by safety professionals.

What is the "safety consulting" service? 

  • Our safety consulting service is characterized by practical support that utilizes our practical experience as a system integrator.As the introduction of new production methods based on collaborative work using people, machinery, and robots accelerates, there is a need for advanced systemization that not only pursues safety but also considers the balance with productivity.
    Our safety professionals who have acquired safety assessor qualifications support the construction of human-friendly production equipment that improves the comfort (well-being) of the work environment.

Outline of “Safety Consulting” Service

    service for

    Please leave the safety of machinery and equipment that conform to overseas standards to us.

    Manufacturers and operators who export machinery worldwide face complex compliance and legal issues.We help your machinery comply with a variety of regulatory requirements, such as CE marking in Europe, OSHA in the United States, or CCC in China.
    We provide consulting and technical support for equipment, such as pointing out load targets on the equipment side. (Field labeling for the US market for the entire device, or arrangement and acceptance of a certification body when implementing CE marking for the European market, guidance on specific countermeasures for the machine side, consulting on safety circuit construction support, etc.)
    Based on our track record of supporting many international standards projects, we offer a wide range of consulting on the electrical and hardware aspects of the entire device equipped with a control panel, in addition to design changes to comply with international standards.

    for Safer Collaborative Robot Systems
    Services

    Leave the safety of your collaborative robot system to us.

    In collaboration between humans and robots, robots and humans share a workspace and work simultaneously.No two human-robot collaborations are the same.Even if the robot used is developed specifically for human collaboration, the risk assessment of the application must be carried out individually.
    Common standards such as IEC 61508, IEC 62061 and ISO 13849-1/-2 form the normative basis for functional safety in applications.In addition, the standard ISO 10218-1/-2 for safety of industrial robots and especially the standard ISO/TS 15066 for robots in collaborative mode should be considered.
    Many people may be thinking, "I want to have a third party participate in the risk assessment to improve safety as much as possible."
    As a collaborative robot system integrator, we have extensive experience in building collaborative robot systems.We respond to requests to improve the safety of production sites where humans and robots work together as much as possible and to eliminate risks.

    Services for safety

    The safety of automated guided vehicle systems (AGV systems)
    Please leave it to us.

    The ISO 3691-4 standard (JIS D 6802) clearly defines requirements for the safety of automatic guided vehicle systems.This standard is currently considered the most important international standard for automated guided vehicle systems.
    If you are using an AGV system in a production or distribution facility, ensure that the system is not only safe to design, but also safe to use and productive, taking into account all space and infrastructure conditions. required to be available.
    Avoiding jams, obstacles and accidents improves safety, optimizes transportation operations, and increases transparency, efficiency and productivity.
    As a system integrator, we have worked on many constructions of unmanned transport systems.We support the construction of optimal unmanned transport systems through consultations based on our experience as a system integrator.
