Hazardous area protection for robots in chocolate-sorting applications

A robot provides trays for sorting packaged chocolate bars. In combination with the Flexi Soft safety controller, two safety laser scanners provide intelligent hazardous area protection. When a worker approaches the hazardous area, the robot reduces its speed in relation to the distance to the person, thus ensuring less downtime.
