AGV Temporary Guarding

    With Automated Guided Vehicles becoming more prevalent in the workplace roles originally filled by a human operator will change from physically doing the work to supervising robotic processes. Where a human may need to interact with these systems a requirement for temporary guarding based on a risk assessment may be identified.    … Continue reading AGV Temporary Guarding


    Below is a Mini Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS) used for ‘Click & Collect’ in superstores, bringing automation even closer to the customer. With more processes becoming automated we need to predict delays, which could impact productivity, and how we can overcome these.     Breakdowns caused by a fallen box can… Continue reading Mini ASRS

Trapped Key ASRS

    This ASRS safety application is achieved entirely though trapped key, meaning there is no wiring required to the gates of each aisle of the system. A panel of several key switches are wired to the system but are kept in one place, though this method means that access can be relatively slow it… Continue reading Trapped Key ASRS

Automated Palletizer

    Palletising cells require fast access, as boxes can fall relatively often and can cause errors or even damage goods with machines carry on without realising it. So having controls at the gate provides that fast response time when an operator sees a box fall or be misplaced.     While you may want… Continue reading Automated Palletizer

Depalletiser – 3PL

Depalletisers are crucial machines in the logistics and warehousing sector and are an extremely efficient tool in removing various types of goods from pallets. Due to the nature of the robotic arm, a depalletiser has the potential to cause serious harm to machine operators or maintenance personnel if they are not correctly safeguarded. The Fortress… Continue reading Depalletiser – 3PL
