Electrical & Mechanical Safety System Design Services

Procter Machine Safety design machine safety systems – both mechanical and automated – that ensures a safe working environment, compliance with safety standards, and improved operational performance.

The nature of machine guarding frequently requires at least a degree of bespoke design services, and in many cases a complete bespoke design. Therefore we’ve acquired huge experience and expertise over many years in designing machine safety systems for every possible application, and across a very diverse range of industries.

Our unrivalled industry expertise and knowledge of safety standards means we can design and manufacture ANY type of machine guard, tailored to suit YOUR industrial safety needs.

Designing Custom Safety Systems for Your Needs

The detailed manufacture design process starts with a thorough survey of your machinery followed by a presentation of our recommendations. Once the guarding requirements have been established, our design engineers will progress the design with the work sometimes carried out on site, or back at our production facilities using the latest CAD technology. In all cases though, the design engineer’s aim is to develop the optimum solution, using the most appropriate materials, and always with the outcome meeting all necessary operational requirements and Health & Safety regulations to ensure compliance.

In addition, our team of electrical engineers can help you upgrade or improve existing automation systems to enhance your processes and operations for improved business performance.

We review your system objectives and can help identify system design solutions to achieve improved reliability, efficiency and productivity.

When we take responsibility for electrical integration and/or modifications to safety-related control systems, all work is completed in accordance with relevant machinery safety standards and regulations. For example:

  • electrical installations on machinery comply with BS EN 60204-1 (IEC 60204-1)
  • functional safety aspects comply with either BS EN ISO 13849-1 or BS EN 62061 (IEC 62061)
  • members of our electrical installation team are certified to the current 18th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations

Control system design and modification

For those designing new machines, we can take full responsibility for the safety-related control system to ensure compliance with relevant harmonized standards. For existing machines undergoing modification or upgrading, we design new safety-related control systems to replace outdated ones or adapt existing controls to accommodate new safety devices.

Beyond compliance

While it is essential that electrical installations comply with applicable standards and regulations, it is also important that the electrical components and system as a whole will operate reliably to give a long, trouble-free lifetime. This is where our experience across many different industries is invaluable.

Our designers, electricians and fitters understand the needs of industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace, papermaking, steel, and food and pharmaceuticals. We design the safety-related control system and its installation on the machine, specify suitable components, and pay careful attention to the details during the installation to ensure the end result is truly fit for purpose.
