Machinery inspection
Services

Our extensive experience in the machinery safety sector allows us to give our expert opinion and to provide all the services necessary to confirm the safety and reliability of your machinery.

AOPD inspection

AOPD inspection

We inspect the correct installation and programming of all active opto-electric protective devices (AOPD), such as safety light curtains and safety laser scanners.

Safety distance inspection

Safety distance inspection

The location of the active opto-electronic protective devices (AOPD), is dependent on a number factors:

  • Type of AOPD installation(horizontal, vertical, oblique).
  • AOPD resolution.
  • Overall downtime due to dangerous movements.

With this information and by applying the relevant standard formulas, we calculate the theoretical safety distances between dangerous movements and the physical location of the AOPD.

In order to validate this distance, we measure the actual downtime when the AOPD is installed.

Safety chain validation

Safety chain validation

Part 2 of standard EN 13849 concerns the validation of the safety related parts of control systems (SRP/CS).

This standard states that the SRP/CS must be validated by analysis or by analysis and testing.

Electrical equipment inspection

Electrical equipment inspection

The electrical equipment of machinery should comply with standard EN 60204-1.

We test the following:

  • Electrical Insulation
  • Withstanding
  • Earthing
  • Protection against short circuits, selectivity.

Safety guard inspection

Safety guard inspection

Safety Guards must be designed using the measurements and distances specified by current safety standards. We verify the correct installation of the guards.

Fieldbus inspection

Fieldbus inspection

We analyse Fieldbuses such as Profibus-DP, Profinet and DeviceNet.

The objective is to improve the efficiency and productivity of your installation.
We provide reports of all tests performed.

EMC inspection

EMC inspection

Whenever macinery has electric and/our electronic equipment the Electromagnetic Compatability Directive (EMC) 2004/108/EC has to be applied.

The equipment must conform to two basic principles:

  1. The possible emission of electromagnetic waves to people, other devices and machines.
  2. The capacity to be immune in industrial environments.

The objective is to improve the efficiency and productivity of your installation.
We provide reports of all tests performed.
