ANSI v. ISO: A COMPARISON BETWEEN STANDARDS
Presenter: Leo Sanchez
This webinar looks in detail at the differences between the two most important safety directives in the world: OSHA and the Machinery Directive. ISO has long been the global standard for machine safety, however, following only the ISO guidelines may not guarantee compliance with ANSI. This webinar is for anyone looking to have their machine comply with safety requirements in North America.
MOCK RISK ASSESSMENT WITH ANSI B110
Presenter: Todd McCoy
Averse to risk assessments? Join us for a risk-free risk assessment for industrial machinery, in which we go through the steps of assessing a robot cell. Using ANSI B110 for the latest standards the webinar will look at how to create a guideline-compliant risk assessment. This is part of a two-part webinar. In the second webinar, we will look at the Validation Process.
VALIDATION PROCESS FOR INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY
Presenter: Leo Sanchez
After completing a risk assessment and implementing the appropriate safety solutions, your system must undergo a validation process. This webinar will go over the validation process according to EN ISO 13849-2 and what you need to know before starting.
DECENTRALIZED DRIVE CONTROL WITH INTEGRATED SAFE TORQUE OFF
Presenter: Jim Cahaly
Decentralized drive control can vastly improve the performance of conveyors and other applications using drives. The podis® MS 5HP integrates Safe Torque Off (STO) features into one motor starter and ensures guaranteed functional safety requirements are met. In this webinar, you will learn about all of the features which make the motor starter unique in its class as well as how it integrated with the Wieland decentralized power bus system.

Explore risk mitigation strategies and examples with our certified safety expert using a palletizing application scenario. This webinar explains in-depth the steps that a manufacturer must take to ensure the palletizing machine addresses the issues identified in the risk assessment.
How to Choose a Safety Software
Explores the differences in safety software requirements according to the standards as well as the additional user benefits to consider when selecting a safety software.
Machine Safety Lifecycle updated according to ANSI B11.0
The machine lifecycle and the safety lifecycle of a machine can be aggregated into one to ensure a better process for designing machines that are compliant with the most relevant safety standards. This webinar looks at ANSI B11.0 as the most salient source for North American safety standards.
