Even better, your machinery will be safer to operate and maintain and be compliant with applicable safety standards (with the documentation to prove it).

What makes us different from other machine guarding suppliers?
Well, a lot of things. Click the features below to learn why we're the best choice for turnkey machine guarding.
Full Customization

With MPSA, your solution is tailored to your needs and machinery, not to the "out of the box" solutions the competition offers.

Custom designed machine guarding solutions can be specifically tailored to fit your machine and operational needs. This also applies to our safety controls design which draws from our wide selection of safety control components, control boxes, and wiring options.  

Furthermore, MPSA provides customized equipment-specific mechanical & electrical drawings outlining all safety upgrades (versus generic vendor-specific drawings).

Understanding Your Requirements

We don't miss important details when designing safety systems. We conduct detailed and collaborative reviews of equipment with owners, operators and maintenance personnel. We will fully understand (and document) important functional requirements regarding access, operations, quality and productivity.

Machine Stop-Time Analysis

Unlike the competition, we don't need to guess, estimate or hire-out to get your exact machine stop-time (which is important for properly installing safety light curtains). MPSA has expertise in conducting machine stop-time analysis and controlling access to all types of hazardous energy sources (including pneumatic and hydraulic sources).

cGMP Compliance

We can provide cGMP compliant guarding designs and materials suitable for food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations.

Dedicated Project Management

Clients are assigned a single point of contact throughout the entire MPSA process. MPSA is staffed with a full-time team of specialists dedicated to turnkey machine safety solutions, so there isn't a need for subcontractors or secondary vendors. We excel in the management of large-scale projects, often involving multiple production lines in a number of different facilities.

In-House Engineering

Unlike other machine-safety companies, MPSA has their own dedicated engineering team. We can engineer new safety solutions and even “re-engineer” and document existing machine-control systems. This is beneficial when the client's control functionality is unknown or their original schematics are not available.

Continuous Support

MPSA can provide post-installation support including training, maintenance service and online spare parts ordering.

Safety Surveys & Risk Assessments

We can perform a Machine Safety Survey (1-2 hours) aligned with regulatory requirements and industry-consensus standards. 

If a more thorough analysis is required, we can perform a Machine Safety Risk Assessment (8+ hours) in accordance with ANSI, ISO or RIA machine risk assessment guidelines. 

Recommendation Report w/ Cost Estimate

After evaluating your machinery, we will provide a Recommendation Report identifying the scope and cost of needed safety upgrades. Other companies don't offer this, but our clients appreciate this information for budgetary planning and approvals.

Flexible Billing

Our clients appreciate our “pay as you go" approach to billing. This gives the maximimum impact to limited funding while reducing the highest risks and compliance gaps. 

Client Approvals

Prior to any fabrication, our clients receive a fully-documented description of all safety upgrades for their approval. This minimizes design changes, installation delays and cost overruns.

Brand Versatility

As a division of Airline (an industrial component distributor), MPSA offers a greater selection of components than the competition.

By representing several leading brands of machine safety components, we're never limited to a single brand, so our client's safety solution isn't limited either.

Control System Validation

After the safety solution is installed, MPSA can conduct safety control system validation in accordance with ISO-13849

We don't like to brag, but our clients love us!

“It was a real pleasure to work alongside true professionals. Thank you for imparting your skills, wisdom and humor as we worked together to make our system safe.”

Textron Defense Systems

Provide a compliant and safe working environment.

Take the first step. Ask MPSA to identify your machine safety and compliance issues. We can do the rest.

Never Hire a Machine-Safety Company Without Asking These 10 Questions

There are many machine-safety companies out there claiming to offer turnkey services. But when you know what to ask them, you’ll find some have the capabilities to handle a complete machine safety project, while others only offer a partial solution. This can create the need for additional research and outsourcing for various aspects of the project. So how do you know when a machine safety company is the right one to partner with? Here are the 10 most important questions to ask when interviewing a potential machine-safety partner.

Are Machine-Safety Issues Keeping You Up at Night?

With downsizing efforts impacting every industry, the availability of in-house machine-safety expertise has declined. Still, as an employer, you bear the responsibility to provide a safe and compliant work environment for your employees. The stakes are high since machine-safety incidents can result in serious, if not fatal, injuries. The potential for machine-related injuries or regulatory-audit findings should always be at the forefront of your mind. You know your machinery needs to be both safe and compliant, but you’re just not sure how to get there.

Six Commonly Overlooked Machine-Safety Requirements

Is your plant machinery both safe and compliant? Has your company experienced a machine-related injury, a close call, or received a regulatory compliance citation associated with the operation or maintenance of plant machinery? Understanding machine safety requirements can be a complex undertaking. Plant machinery can also be unknowingly hazardous to your employees resulting in serious, if not fatal injuries. These tragic events can also create significant liability for your company.
