Become a CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert


September 13, 2021

In cooperation with TÜV NORD, Pilz offers the qualification to become a CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert. The four-day course gives an overall view of the subject of machinery safety and is divided into five modules which convey comprehensive knowledge on and about the machinery lifetime cycle. The CMSE modules are standardised worldwide and are of a uniform level. The concluding TÜV NORD certificate has international validity.

By the end of the course the participants will be able to:

  •    –   Understand the requirements of Regulations and Standards in relation to machinery
  •    –   Discover how these may be applied to the design, build, maintenance and operation of machinery
  •    –   Recognize and identify the obligations to be met when specifying, designing or putting a machine into service
  •    –   Enhance their competence in designing safety systems
  •    –   Be qualified as a CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert (upon successful completion of the examination on day 4)


The seminar includes a multiple choice test. If the test is passed, the participants receive the internationally acknowledged TÜV NORD certificate of CMSE – Certified Machinery Safety Expert, which is valid for 4 years. The one-day recertification extends the validity for another four years.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
