The new program of the Pilz seminar format “Safe Automation” will start in March 2023. At over 30 locations throughout Germany, manufacturers of machinery and equipment can obtain information free of charge about safety concepts for area monitoring. The complementary online event series “Web compact” from the “Automation on Tour” series will focus on safety-related issues of machine and plant operators in 2023.

From March to June 2023, Pilz welcomes machinery and plant manufacturers at over 30 locations in Germany to an intensive exchange on the possibilities of safe area monitoring – be it safety concepts with scanners, light curtains or radar sensor technology.

Pilz experts will share their knowledge of current changes in the field of directives and standards at the event. Also part of the program: Everything you need to know about the new Machinery Ordinance. From theory to practice: together with Pilz experts, participants work out a safety solution live on site using a common machine example. The verification of the safety concept is also considered in detail.

New in the seminar: Discussion of the most important “do’s and don’ts” in the area of electro-sensitive protective equipment. The previous second series of Pilz seminars “Safe operation of plant and machinery” will be continued in 2024 and from then on always alternates with the “Safe automation” seminar.

Digital supplement “Web compact”: For those who can’t be there on site but still want to keep up to date with safe automation, Pilz offers the online format “Automation on Tour – Web compact”, a web seminar on a current topic twice a month.
In 2023, the topics range from “safe presence detection under harsh environmental conditions” to “what the new Machinery Ordinance means for machine manufacturers and operators” to “employee protection in production – productivity and safety of machines”. Here, too, the focus is on a high level of practical relevance and knowledge transfer. Participants can submit questions on the respective topic in advance for the first time in 2023.
