Safely Using Robots in Flammable Environments

Webinar: Thursday - December 2, 2021 @ 2:00PM EDT


Discover the robotics advantage! Learn how high-performance robotic automation can help prevent potential fires in flammable environments.



To learn more about using high-performance robots for applications like painting, coating and handling in flammable environments, join Yaskawa Motoman experts, Anthony Steward and Peter Goike, for a candid conversation about the top questions they are asked when it comes to industrial automation and preventing factory fires. Topics covered include:

  • Electrically classified areas and NFPA 70®

  • Proper workcell layout and code enforcement

  • Paint robots vs. traditional robots

  • Fire suppression requirements for robots

  • Peripheral equipment (i.e., safety gates, sensors, solenoids, etc.)

  • Water based and powder paint considerations

  • And, more!

Who Should Attend

  • All fabricators that currently paint or coat parts

  • Any manufacturer looking to upgrade safety in flammable factory environments
