Note: The date for this event has changed and there is now no charge for this event. If you have received a refund for a previous registration, please register again. Registrants will be updated with any further changes to the schedule.

Join us for a day of learning focused on machine safety design and technical applications.

Gain invaluable knowledge through presentations by industry experts, interactive demonstrations and growing the reach of your network. We will discuss machine safeguarding regulations and standards, hydraulic safety, robotics, machine program management, fixed guarding, presence sensing system design, machine lockout and more!

Lunch is included!

8:00 am – 8:25 am: Introductions and welcome (ITC and MADE SAFE)

8:25 am – 9:00 am: Regulations and Standards (Mike Gordon, Kristin Petaski – Workplace Engineering Solutions)
Outline: A review of current standards and regulations as they apply to machine safeguarding, and a discussion of
the process of the risk assessment to assist in design and integration.

  • applicable regulations and standards
  • updates on changes
  • outline of the machine safeguarding process
  • next steps in design

9:00 am – 9:15 am: NETWORKING BREAK

9:15 am – 10:00 am: Safety Circuit Design (Christian Bidner – Omron)
Outline: How to design safety circuits, examples of common ones.

  • Safety Circuit Design (Covering principles of Redundancy and Monitoring)
  • Safety Relays and their usage in Safety Systems
  • Safety Rated Stop Motion Detection and the use of Solenoid Locking Switches
  • Safety Relays vs Safety Controllers (What is the right solution for your application?)
  • Final word about E-stops.

10:00 am – 10:15 am: NETWORKING BREAK

10:15 am – 11:15 am: Safety Doesn’t End at the Wire (Todd Paquet – Ross)
Outline: Pneumatic hazards are often hidden or not fully evaluated in risk assessments. We will discuss types of
hazards, how they can be addressed, and common misapplied practices with fluid power.

  • The Safety Chain and where pneumatics fit
  • Different forms of energy isolation in fluid power (Best Practices)
  • Considering Safe Cylinder Return
  • Trapping pressure downstream

11:15 am: Wrap-up (ITC): Thank participants, outline the means for further communication with session
presenters, get feedback on event.
