U.S. Adopts New Robot Safety Standard: ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218-1-2007
It's official. The United States has adopted the international ISO 10218-1 robot safety standard as its own.

The resulting ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218-1:2007 is identical to the original. It will even keep the same number and title as its international counterpart. Called the Robots for Industrial Environment Safety Requirements, Part 1-Robot, this safety standard pertains only to robot construction. It is no meant to replace the ANSI/RIA R15.06:1999.

The new ANSI/RIA/ISO 10218-1:2007 Standard will pave the way for emerging robot technologies. Some of the important items include:
  • Wireless Teach Pendants
    No more dangerous cabling. The new standard discusses various safety aspects for wireless teach pendants.
  • Safety-rated Axis Limiting
    Many of the new controllers include safety software to contain robot movements internally without any need for external safety sensors or other features. 
  • Collaborative Robots
    The new safety standard addresses various issues that arise when robots and human workers share space.
  • Simultaneous Motion
    Sometimes one controller coordinates the movements of multiple manipulators. Safety guidelines for these types of systems are outlined in the standard.

RobotWorx integrates robots and workcells to meet a variety of different safety standards per the customer's request.
