Yellow safety focus at Leuze

20 August 2020

In the field of automation technology, the colour yellow stands for safety at work. The safety expert Leuze, as a developer and provider of safety sensors, safety solutions and safety services for the entire life cycle of a machine, is now further increasing focus of the company’s safety competence in its business activities with a dedicated division. Leuze emphasizes this with the motto, 'Safety at Leuze'.

Leuze operates a proactive 'differentiation and focusing policy', which means its sensor experts concentrate on those focus industries in which they have acquired extensive, specific application know-how over the years.

“When these technological competences are applied to the relevant industry segments in a targeted fashion, this results in specific applications,” explains Dr Albrecht von Pfeil, Director Business Area Safety Sensors & Solutions at Leuze. “One of these is the area of safety, which is increasingly becoming a focal point for us."

From sensor manufacturer to safety all-rounder

Leuze has always been a forerunner in the area of safety at work through trend-setting inventions, such as the development of the very first protective sensor. Having started as a manufacturer and developer of safety sensors, Leuze has further developed significantly in recent years. Today, the product range of the safety expert includes safety sensors, safety services and safety solutions. This know-how is packaged together in the newly created Safety division. For its customers, Leuze is thus a reliable partner for efficient safety sensor solutions for the entire life cycle of their machines and systems.

Safety solutions made by Leuze

Over the course of several decades, the Sensor People have acquired extensive safety expertise and today have in-depth knowledge of standards as well as a great deal of practical experience in the use of safety- related applications. Both form the basis of the Leuze safety solutions. At the heart of every safety solution are the safety concepts qualified by Leuze.Professional Leuze safety consultants assess the requirements for each individual safety solution and tailor them to the respective system layout. The Sensor People accompany the projects all the way through to the safety-related approval of the safety solution on-site.

“Safety at Leuze”

The decision to increase focus on the area of safety is underlined by a new motto, 'Safety at Leuze'.

“The new safety motto stands for an ideally matched product portfolio, extensive experience in safety consulting, in engineering and design of safety solutions as well as the broad range of safety services. All of this for various aspects of different types of machines and systems,” explains Dr von Pfeil.
