Functional safety for mobile work machines with Rexroth Safety on Board solutions
With European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC as well as other international and national standards, the requirements for the functional safety of mobile machinery have in part increased significantly. Manufacturers are now obliged to use a risk analysis to identify all potential hazards that could be caused by a machine, to assess these hazards, and to reduce them with appropriate measures. The goal is to ensure safe working with the machine with the smallest possible risk in all operating situations – whether on construction sites, in warehouses or in public places. In addition to reliable components which have proven security features, Bosch Rexroth offers comprehensive expertise in helping machinery manufacturers with all safety-related issues. Our focus is helping you achieve the right combination of high machine availability and efficiency with maximum functional safety.
