Safely meeting the demands of today's consumer
Manufacturing facilities need to be highly flexible, maintain inventory, and produce their product at increased rates to ensure maximized production runs. This fast- paced and highly automated environment introduces hazards for both personnel and equipment. Consumers today want every product, with every configuration, and have it instantly available. These demands place an increased focus on manufacturers to ensure they provide a high level of options, the best quality, at the lowest cost. In addition, government regulations require the manufacturing environment is safe for employees and the products meet specific requirements.
KIRK® trapped key interlock systems help control risk and provide guarded access into any area where hazardous energy is present and/or machine guarding is a necessity. A defined sequence of operations with a KIRK® interlock system ensures safety processes are followed in a specific order, every time, protecting equipment and saving lives.
