B&R standard motors now suitable for all safety applications

B&R is now equipping all standard motors with a safe encoder mount. They can therefore now be used for safety applications without restrictions. A special safety motor is no longer necessary. The delivery times and prices of the standard motors remain the same. Safety applications can be implemented in less time and at lower cost.

Safety applications used to require the use of special motors with a safe encoder mount. B&R has now developed a special process, where a positive-locking element ensures that the encoder and motor shaft cannot slip unnoticed. This makes it possible to implement safety functions such as Safe Positioning and Safe Homing, for which safe position feedback is required.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
