We advise you from the very beginning of the project, including technical support

We coordinate all of the phases of a project with your installation company: study, electrical-mechanical modifications and verification of the proposed safety measures.

We always optimise safety, productivity, implementation costs, and ensure there are no concerns about the machines or work equipment’s safety

Advice on the guidelines to follow when analysing machine risk

We offer you our wide-ranging experience with the different European directives and propose solutions that comply with existing regulations.

We provide support to ensure that your machine is designed with the necessary measures to make it safe for use.

We advise you on how to proceed with the necessary and mandatory documents required to apply for the CE Mark (Technical Dossier). If you would rather outsource this service, we will put you in touch with one of our trusted collaborating companies.

Advice on adapting work equipment according to RD1215

We help you to verify that your work equipment manufactured prior to 1995 complies with the 19 points established in Royal Decree 1215/97, amended by Royal Decree 2177/04, establishing the minimum safety features required by equipment made before that date.

Advice on verifying compliance with regulations when acquiring machinery and work equipment

Once the suitability study has been completed, if you do not have sufficient time or material, we can coordinate with your installation company to start and perform the electrical and mechanical procedures required to apply the safety measures indicated.

Coordination of “Turnkey solutions” with your installation company

If you acquire or integrate machinery, or you purchase work equipment and you are unaware of existing directives, we can help you to make a thorough check of all safety aspects to ensure that they comply with all essential machine safety requirements.

We advise machine manufacturing companies and their end users on safety techniques

Thanks to our experience as an electrical material supplier, we can recommend the most suitable safety devices for your machinery.

Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) measurements

We carry out EMC and power quality measurements on the network; we also prepare the necessary reports to ensure that your machinery complies with the electromagnetic compatibility directive 2004/108-CE, remaining immune at a given value and without causing any disturbance to the power supply.

Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) of machines

Most accidents are caused by not correctly neutralising the machine’s power supply.

To avoid this problem, we analyse and supply the most suitable locking devices in each case, ensuring that the maintenance and repair work on the electrical installation or the surrounding area can be carried out safely and without voltage.

We also perform the above action according to the general provisions established in Annex IIA of the [Spanish] Law 31/95.

Technical support in the installation of safety elements in order to correct deficiencies

If you run into difficulty when installing, configuring or programming these, you can turn to the wide experience of our technical personnel and obtain the necessary information.

Training in industrial safety

We personalise training in industrial safety for correct application and introduction of the requirements demanded under existing legislation and regulations.

We give advice on selecting materials for areas with explosive atmospheres (ATEX)

We advise you on the classification of ATEX areas and on how to select the most suitable materials for guaranteeing better protection against each one of the risks identified.

Training in industrial safety

  • The purpose of training is for you to have an essential tool to help you reduce and prevent accidents at work. We personalise industrial safety training to keep fully in line with the requirements of existing legislation and regulations.
  • You can make sure the people in charge of machinery safety, technical staff, maintenance staff and machinery operators are equipped with the necessary theoretical and practical skills.
