A great number of workplace accidents still occur during maintenance. These accidents can cause severe human suffering, high insurance premiums and reduced production efficiency. Lockout/Tagout offers a practical way to control maintenance safety risks. Find out best practice in our guide book!
Brady's best practice Lockout/Tagout programme includes:
- Define your maintenance risk control needs: we conduct or support on-site surveys to map the energy control points for every machine
- Choose the right locks & devices: you can select the right locks & devices for your needs...
VEGA Grieshaber’s VEGAPULS 64 measures liquids at a frequency of 80 GHz. This feature enables considerably better focusing of the radar beam. Measuring is thus much easier and more reliable, even under difficult conditions. The focused beam allows the sensor to be used even in vessels with internal installations or heavy build-up on its walls, as the sensor simply avoids these obstacles.
The larger the dynamic range of a radar sensor, the higher the measurement certainty and the wider the range of applications that the sensor can be used for. Media with very poor reflective...
Use durable pipe markers, safety signs, CLP-labels and area marking from BRADY. Align with International Directives and national legislation, prevent accidents by communicating important safety information when and where co-workers need to see it, and identify areas in line with 5S and lean manufacturing for more efficiency.
Avoid collisions between pedestrians, forklifts and other vehicles by clearly marking traffic lanes. Let employees and first responders know which pipes or chemical containers have a dangerous content and implement prohibition, warning, mandatory, evacuation and fire...
The Rotary Pressure Valve is a variant of the Rotary Valve and is designed for process applications where the treated product is particularly aggressive, not compatible with the material used for the construction of the sealing element (seal) in the presence of solvents during the cycle or during the wash cycle (CIP / SIP).
The valve is made of a monoblock body where the interceptor element is held in place thanks to suitable plastic material holders (FDA), which keep the rotor centered on the valve body.
This variant is not different from the main features of the Rotary Valve as,...
FLIR Systems GF-series Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras are now available with interchangeable 24-degree, 14.5-degree and 6-degree lenses. This new flexibility has been introduced to maximise the gas leak finding capabilities of these popular cameras. Available as standard on all new GF320 Series and other related cameras, all existing GF Series OGI cameras returned to FLIR systems for general maintenance can be retrofitted with the interchangeable lens capability free of charge.

Imagine a world without any sign and think about how quickly we would get lost, how chaotic traffic would become, how much time you would lose, and how many accidents this would result in. Signalling makes safe and efficient, also in the workplace.
Did you know 75% of knowledge is gained through visuals?
Signalling can help you to:
• prevent accidents
• gain time
• be compliant with legislation
• quickly follow up on safety audits
• match industry best practices
• visualise machine operating instructions
Paper slitting machines from American machine builder JSI are well-connected indeed. By using HMS technology, JSI can remotely access and control the machine via the internet and also enable wired and wireless communication between different parts of the machine. All this allows JSI to offer an even more competitive and connected machine.
· Operators avoid contact with sharp slitter blades
· Reduced downtime due to blade changes
· Reduced service costs as service can be done remotely
· Maximized blade life through wear...
Parker Hannifin Corporation's Electronic Controls Business Unit can now meet the needs of mobile machinery applications with new functional safety controllers. As well as offering high levels of robustness and straightforward system integration, the new RISE (SP) certified IQAN-MC4xFS controllers have been developed to provide a more cost-effective way of meeting the safety standards required for heavy mobile machinery. Typical applications include reach stackers, aerial platforms, refuse truck...
FLIR Systems announces new Quantitative Optical Gas Imaging (qOGI) technology, developed in conjunction with Providence Photonics, that was designed to work exclusively with its GF-Series cameras. qOGI represents a major advance in the world of optical gas imaging because it eliminates the need for secondary sampling devices to quantify gas emissions.
Using a Providence Photonics’ QL320™ in conjunction with a FLIR GFx320 or FLIR GF320 camera, surveyors can now measure mass leak rates (lb/h or g/h) or volumetric leak rates (cc/min or L/min) for most hydrocarbons.
Machine vision becomes an integral element of the automation ecosystem with B&R. At this year's SPS IPC Drives, B&R introduced its first image processing solution to be seamlessly incorporated in the automation system. The solution comprises cameras, software and lighting accessories.
At the heart of the solution is a broad selection of intelligent camera technology. Options at the lower end will replace simple machine vision sensors, while the top of the range will harness the full potential of high-end...
