Changing The Paradigm: Safety & Productivity

Tuesday, April 9 | 2:30 - 3:30 p.m. | Track: How to Automate

In the past, the machine guarding philosophy was to completely separate the human from the machine or robot. Unfortunately, this resulted in the paradigm of safety vs. productivity, you either had safety or productivity, but you couldn't have both. This paradigm is now shifting to "Safety & Productivity," driven by a combination of new/updated standards and new technologies which allow closer human-machine interaction and new modes of collaborative operation.
