Euchner is a leading innovator in industrial safety engineering, developing and manufacturing products and solutions tailored to the requirements of customers from a wide range of sectors.
The family-owned business was established in the UK in 1982 and has hundreds of employees around the world supplying safety-related equipment for machines and industrial installations designed to minimise hazards and risks, which in turn protects people and processes.
Euchner was the first company to develop the RFID Safety Switch, now included as standard in many products. As a firm believer in close collaboration with their many customers, Euchner is well-placed to co-develop the very-best solutions to give the highest levels of safety at the same time ensuring the equipment can be operated and maintained in the most productive manner. Euchner’s quality standards go beyond those required by regulations and laws. All central components are manufactured in-house using the latest equipment available. Internal quality management processes ensure that no product leaves Euchner’s premises without a detailed inspection and sign-off.
MGB (Multifunction Gate Box)
The MGB2 Modular and MGB2 Classic offer more variations, additional functions, different networking options and intelligent communication features, such as diagnostic data, which means they are more than ready for industry 4.0. These new versions build on the success of the German company’s MGB system, which has been protecting safety doors and perimeter guarding inside automated manufacturing facilities for over a decade, enabling the identification of faults and keeping employees safe from dangerous machine movements. They can also accommodate future upgrades to equipment, installations and production lines, saving the cost on downtime and/or major overhauls. The new variants are suitable for a wide variety of sectors, such as automotive, packaging, pharmaceuticals and food processing, to name just a few.
With a combination of a safety switch, bolt and door locking mechanism rolled into one, the MGB is a world-leading system for machinery guarding, however, no two safety applications are the same. Some production processes need an integrated emergency stop to secure safety doors, while others need additional request and acknowledgement buttons fitted directly onto the safety door. The new MGB2 Modular and Classic solutions can be adapted to meet these requirements.
Safety Consulting Services
Euchner Safety Services offers professional services throughout the entire life cycle of machines and installations. The expansion of its engineering services allows the experienced team to support its customers as a complete service provider: Alongside design and planning, these services also encompass the implementation and integration of safety solutions. Machine end-users in particular will benefit from this comprehensive service for their modifications, integration and retrofitting.
There is a growing demand for support in machinery safety because the legislation in this field is constantly changing. At the same time, the machines and installations themselves are becoming ever more complex. However, safe machinery and installations not only protect operating personnel from hazards, but also the processes from interruptions – which ultimately increases the productivity of machines and installations.
