Machine Safety Engineering

IAS Safety Engineering.webpA risk assessment locates opportunities to create a safer operating environment, but identifying the hazard is only half the battle. Through safe design, integration, and support services, our clients realize safe systems that are robust and sustainable for the long-term.

Designed from the Ground Up

Just like a factory itself, risk does not reside in purely one field. Even simple threats are often affected by a series of contingencies and variables. These dependencies continue to grow as the physical and digital worlds continue to come together. VMRA safety engineering services draws on our expertise in programming, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering to implement solutions that are safe and connected.

Retrofit & Upgrade

Legacy safety systems can be lacking in performance or no longer adhere to the standards that they were meant to meet. VMRA can analyze performance and retrofit or upgrade the equipment with new, high-performance components. This is done with special care to the manufacturer and communication protocol demands of the client for a result that is supportable and user-friendly.
