The future of safety engineering in manufacturing and processing plants is digital, which creates opportunities for plant operators to enhance efficiency, increase flexibility and make their plants safe and secure.
This edition of Talking Industry addresses how implementing safety initiatives can enhance efficiency, while addressing the risks. We will cover:
Integrating technology into new and existing assets The contribution of newer technologies to a risk-reduction programme. Maintaining functional safety integrity Utilising safety logic for reduced security risks Safeguarding hazardous areas where conventional cable runs would struggle.
In this session of Talking Industry, an expert panel will deliver experience, expert opinions and information on how robots are shaping the future of industry, at the time that there is a shortage of workers with competent skills to meet industry demand.
How are robots allowing manufacturers to address product quality, cost savings, reduced waste, repeatability, speed and accuracy?
The UK is the only G7 country with a robot density below the world average. However, current circumstances, pressures and incentives may see the UK begin to move up the league table. What educational and financial support is available?
What are the safety issues to consider with robots and applicable standards? Examples of the uses (and limitations) of Cobots (collaborative robots)/
The session will include an assessment of how robots can help with achieving net zero targets through reshoring and improved energy efficiency and reliability.
