AR Controls design, build, install and commission complete new machine safety systems. We can also give you some practical advice on how we can upgrade your older non-compliant machine safety systems to the highest applicable current safety standards.
You can then be assured that your machine safety systems meet the latest relevant standards with full supporting documentation provided. We have provided safety system integration services for SICK (UK) Ltd, Mitsubishi, Jokab and IMO for many customers in automotive, plastics, timber and metal processing industries to mention a few. These intelligent solutions optimise your productivity while increasing operator protection and assuring compliance.
We can offer a machine stop time performance measurement service with full supporting documentation. Our engineers are trained in the use of the HHB Delta Man T stop time performance measurement system and AR Controls have a complete calibrated test kit in house at their disposal.
The latest cutting-edge developments in opto-electronic protective devices (safety light curtains & safety laser scanners) are our first choice for compliant machine safety and maximum system productivity. Unlike fences and doors, they do not disrupt handling or material transport and allow a better view into the machine area. Our range of comprehensive solutions are ideal for hazardous point of use protection and entry access protection into dangerous areas.
In addition to this AR Controls have standardised their safety control solutions around the Sick FlexiSoft configurable safety relay system which can support very large complex remote safe I/O systems with up to 20 CPU’s spread over a theoretical 20km with gateway communications, safe absolute position, safe speed and even analogue measurement for process safety.
