Who we are

Safe living, Safe working

The efforts of the Schmersal group have for many years been directed to producing products for safety at the workplace. From the most varied mechanical and electrosensitive switching devices, the largest range in the world of safety switching devices and safety switching systems for the protection of man and machine has come into being. In this new online-catalogue, the complete range is presented.

For about twenty years now, safety and productivity have no longer been mutually exclusive. Authorities and institutions have followed with great attention the integration of modern safety systems into the machines, thus supporting a free flow of production. The manufacturers of safety systems provide an important contribution to the organization of an humane working environment, in which the machine takes over heavy and monotonous work from the workers without making them subject to dangers and risks.

Motivated by the vision of a safe working environment, the development engineers of the Schmersal group are continuously producing new devices and systems for all sorts of application situations. We will focus on three lines of business: lift technology, automation technology and safety technology. Our large know-how, our innovative strength and our extensive program are the keywords of our leading position. New safety concepts require new system solutions and innovative principles of detection need to be integrated as well as using new methods of information transmission and evaluation. The growing volume of standards and directives on machine safety has also led to a change in the attitudes of manufacturers and users of machines.

Those are the challenges which the Schmersal group of companies has set itself, for today and the future, as partner of machine and plant manufacturers.
