The number of manually controlled machinery workstations has decreased considerably since the early 2000s. Automatization and robot applications keep pushing people from the shop floors around the world.
Automated parts production and assembly may fail, however, calling for manual “emergency operation strategies”. Sometimes, production lots are simply not big enough to make fully automated production economical. And yet another factor bringing back manual control operations is the steady trend toward individualisation of products. Where the quantity of identical products is close to ONE, manual insertion and assembly of parts as well as manual start may return to the workplace.

But the publication of the new versions is a good opportunity to remind technicians and engineers of a few of the most pertinent aspects of machine safety, and alert them to an important standardisation trend.

A safer world! Axelent is found on all continents with the exception of Antarctica. From Hillerstorp with love – welcome to a safe world!
The majority of Axelent’s product range is built on two words: common sense. Johan Axelsson, Technical Manager, explains that common sense leads to simple solutions – which is what the customer really wants and needs in the end.
Since 2015, Axelent’s entire power needs come exclusively from its own wind turbines. The majority of the company’s energy consumption occurs in the production facilities in Hillerstorp - which is powered by 100% renewable energy. And the excess heat from the production line is used to heat Axelent’s other premises.
