WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT TO REVIEW THE SAFETY OF MECHANICAL COMPONENTS?

Mechanical components are required to carry out safety functions in many automated safety systems to prevent mechanical failures and injury to people or damage to equipment. As such, reviewing the mechanical design represents a vital part of the overall assessment of a safety system. To skip the systematic and qualitative assessment of mechanical components neglects the fundamental requirements of safety related systems.

WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES WHEN IT COMES TO INSPECTING MECHANICAL COMPONENTS?

Unfortunately, there are hardly any specific standards when it comes to reviewing the functional safety of mechanical or mechatronic components. Instead, only qualitative criteria are used to evaluate and assess the strength and durability of those components. The criteria are focused on the design, dimensioning, design calculation and experimental testing in line with the specified operating conditions. One of the biggest challenges during the assessment of mechanical and mechatronic components is to identify the relevant failure mechanisms to derive appropriate systematic counter measures.

OUR WORKSHOP ON REVIEWING THE FUNCTIONAL SAFETY OF MECHANICAL COMPONENTS

WHO SHOULD TAKE PART IN OUR FUNCTIONAL SAFETY WORKHSOP FOR MECHANICAL COMPONENTS?

The target group for our mechanical safety workshop are design engineers as well as quality and test engineers. If this is you, you may want to know more about functional safety requirements for mechanical components and to extend your knowledge in this area with our expert workshop.

WHAT DO OUR FUNCTIONAL SAFETY FOR MECHANICAL COMPONENTS WORKSHOPS COVER?

Participants will learn more about reasonable technical options that consider the specific behaviour of mechanical components in various applications. Within this context, the workshop covers

● how to identify possible systematic failures,

● how to identify dominant failure mechanisms, and

● how to determine appropriate fault exclusion and avoidance measures.

Our workshop helps you to combine the theory behind functional safety with practical requirements. Learn more about functional safety of mechanical components of a safety system and pinpointing areas that need improvement.
