Rockwell Automaton announced four additions to its Machine Safety System Integrator program: R.L. Consulting Inc, Servicios Integrales en Automatizacion S.A de C.V., V&C Corporation SAC and Foth. Created in 2014, the program aims to help industrial companies identify safety system integrators with current safety standards expertise, a proven track record in building safety systems, and knowledge of contemporary safety technologies. The program now includes 37 system integrators located around the world.

To be eligible for the Machine Safety System Integrator program, candidates must be current Solution Partners or Recognized System Integrators in the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork program with three to five years of machine safety experience. Candidates must also complete an education and assessment process, but Rockwell Automation also recognizes third-party certification from industry-accepted organizations, such as TÜV or exida.

After meeting these initial requirements, each candidate’s safety engineers complete training modules on topics, such as global safety standards, safety risk assessment practices, and safeguarding mitigation and validation. Finally, each candidate must submit a machine safety project that is consistent with global standards.

R.L. Consulting specializes in electrical control system integration in the pulp and paper, steel, textile, automotive and wood processing industries.

Servicios Integrales specializes in motion control, drive systems and integration services for a number of industries, including automotive, metals, food and material handling.
