Reducing injuries within safety gates by detecting the presence of humans

Challenges in achieving both safety and productivity

A production engineer at an auto manufacturer, specifically lines of metal part machining, was struggling daily to improve production efficiency.
The most challenging problem was how to use safety measures to reduce injuries, specifically how to confirm the existence of humans within safety gates. They had already experienced many false detections and machine failures with safety mat and light sensors.
Enter IDEC. Using an IDEC device, it was possible to detect the existence of humans and solve this problem. So, what was the solution?

Prevent potential human injuries using safety laser scanners.
