Laird Launches New Wireless "Safe-E-Stop" for Emergency Shutdowns in Manufacturing, Automated Production Line Environments
Warren, OH – Seconds matter when it comes to manufacturing and production line mishaps that can injure workers or damage equipment, especially in heavily automated environments. According to OSHA nearly 5,000 workers were fatally injured in industrial accidents in 2015.
And, while hard-wired emergency-stop pushbuttons -- or “e-stops” – are the standard solution to shut-down a production or manufacturing line, the arrival of wireless control technology for e-stop buttons now allows mobility of the worker which translates to faster response time in the event of a line problem.
