Safety at work in the construction of vehicle bodies


The modern, flexible production systems at MAGNA STEYR in Graz are characterized by robots in assembly cells which practically work hand in hand with their human colleagues. Safety at work is the top priority here. System manufacturer EBZ has created a safety concept based on PROFIsafe with safety sensors from Leuze electronic for the construction of Peugeot RCZ vehicle bodies. Since the entire system is equipped with PROFIBUS, the safety sensors must feature an integrated bus interface.


COMPACTplus Safety Light Curtains and ROTOSCAN RS4 Safety Laser Scanners are employed in this application - each with a PROFIsafe interface. The customer can therefore combine safety devices and non-safety-related standard automation components in the system, reduce wiring work and save both time and money.
