Motion Controls Robotics works in an industry where injuries are common, and the team has implemented many procedures over the years to make sure employees work safely and have a safe work environment. Most recently, MCRI developed 5S procedures. 5S benefits overall employee safety through making clear where items are located - reducing confusion and clutter.

In the 22 years MCRI has been developing and integrating robot systems we have had no reported "Lost-Time Injury." This is quite an accomplishment and something the MCRI team is proud to announce.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
