Securing safety for small equipment

A production engineer at an auto manufacturer for cranks, cams, and gears had issues concerning safety measures for production process that used press fitting machines.Press fitting machines are small, and too small for using a safety PLC. Even if a safety PLC could be used, user training was necessary so it required a lot of work. An easy and secure safety measure was required.
IDEC was able to improve safety of small equipment such as press fitting machines by using an IDEC device instead of a safety PLC.
So what was the solution?
