Machine Safety Forum – March 9th & 10th 2021

February 1, 2021

Keeping workers safe and keeping the production line going may seem contradictory, but in most cases, safety solutions increase productivity and machine availability. Implementing risk mitigation techniques without following the right process, however, can have a detrimental effect on productivity. On March 9th & 10th, 2021, the Machine Safety Forum will bring together Functional Safety Experts, standards experts, and solutions providers to provide information and guidance on safety processes and best practices.

Featured Presentations

Presentations and discussions will focus on risk assessments, ANSI B11 standards (special guest) and the machine safety lifecycle. Presentations will include:

  •    –   Machine Safety Lifecycle
  •    –   ANSI B11 Machinery Safety Standards and Their Importance – presented by David Felinski, ANSI B11 Committee President
  •    –   Selling Machinery to Europe, Law and Directives
  •    –   A guide to choosing the right safety software

Special Guest

Wieland have invited David Felinski for a special presentation on the ANSI B11 Standards. He is the President of B11 Standards Inc., which is the Secretariat and ANSI-accredited Standards Developer for the B11 series of machinery safety standards, and technical reports, as well as the U.S. TAG Administrator to ISO/TC 199, ISO/TC270 and SC 10 of ISO/TC 39. Register here.

Roundtable Invitation

In addition, registrants will have unique opportunity to pose their safety related questions directly to Wieland’s Functional Safety Experts and Mr. Feliski at their open roundtable. You can submit your questions ahead of time on their event page.

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.
