Safety & Explosion protection Business | EMEA
Providing solutions that enhance safety and productivity, as a leading company in safety
Since our founding, we have focused on safe environments for humans interacting with machines, and to that end we have developed safety-related devices that are thoroughly dedicated to safety, reliability, and ease of use. We are on the cutting edge of providing solutions that enhance safety and productivity.
Automation and the use of robotics is on the rise at manufacturing sites. We have come up with our next-generation safety philosophy “Collaborative Safety (Safety2.0)”, which is aimed at coordinating safety between humans and machines.
This philosophy doesn’t just deal with keeping humans out of harm’s way, it also allows us to provide cooperative safety equipment applications that allow the machines to sense any dangers for humans in order to better regulate the safety environment. At the same time, we are pouring our efforts into outreach programs such as the creation of new safety standards and safety consulting.
With our products such as safety laser scanners that are able to detect the presence or incursion of humans in work areas or within the bounds of safety fences, interlock switches that can detect whether device doors or safety fence gates are opened or closed, or enabling devices that are compliant with international safety standards, we provide comprehensive environments where safety is always the number one consideration. We offer support for all manner of safety architecture in mechanical devices that conform to international standards, and we are actively promoting Vision Zero.
Creating explosion protection environments with enhanced safety and securityWe have been responding to our customers’ needs through our more than 70 years of research and development into explosion protection technologies.
We have adapted to social changes such as factory automation and internationalization, and we have been able to develop a wide variety of equipment associated with explosion protection that can be used at sites such as petroleum plants and chemical factories that handle explosive gases, or warehouses.
We fulfill more detailed customer requests for control boxes, such as their layouts, sizes, and operability, while promoting the acquisition of overseas explosion protection certifications such as IECEx (international explosion protection product certification) and ATEX (the European directive for explosion protection) directives, and North American UL standards.
Ours is a product lineup that is able to respond on a global scale.
We have an abundant variety of LED illumination units available that can take the place of conventional mercury lamps, offering illumination from high ceilings or for penetrative in-tank inspections.
These lights benefit our customers with energy savings and low maintenance. In addition, optimal networked camera systems for monitoring in sites such as manufacturing plants enable an enhanced degree of freedom for installation sites via wireless LANs, as well as monitoring via remote operation.
These systems also contribute towards improved safety in explosion protection environments and towards energy savings and reduced maintenance.
