Robot Safety, Anything but Routine
Doug Huston, Project Manager for Genesis Systems Group LLC, knows firsthand the importance of robot safety. He is often the one potentially in harm’s way.
“Most of the accidents happen in the troubleshooting phases when you’re trying to figure out what’s going on, or programming the robot cell,” says Huston. “I still have my hand on pendants today, so I fully understand that.”
