The core competence of Waldorf Technik is modular, efficient and productive automation solutions, fully customized to customer requirements and offering maximum safety. CE marking is essential for these modular machines: it demonstrates that the equipment as a whole complies with the health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. Waldorf entrusts Pilz with the implementation of normative, rigorous risk assessments and verification procedures: As a service specialist, Pilz is responsible for the entire conformity procedure.

Every interface is under safe control

The initial situation was tricky, with Waldorf Technik’s production plant presenting many potential hazards in various intelligently interconnected factory modules. Instead, the company is obliged to assess the risks and implement risk reduction measures for each interface. And there is a special challenge: third-party interfaces need to be compatible and tested.

Waldorf Technik collaborated with safety automation specialist Pilz, who briefed Waldorf Technik on the entire conformity assessment procedure and gave comprehensive advice, which saved a lot of time. In the end Pilz took care of all assessment procedures from risk assessment to verification and CE certification of the factory.
