When is a safety mat better than a laser scanner?

In the new flexible factory environment, customers require that every piece of automation earns its spot in the manufacturing process. This means that, not only purchase price, but operator safety, reliability, maintenance, and repair costs all go into the equipment purchase decision. Providing a safe and reliable solution in a robot-AGV-human environment is a must.

While safety laser scanners are often considered the default solution for enhancing workplace safety, this engagement demonstrated that there are times when well thought out applications of proven technology are actually the best solutions.
