Trying to determine whether or not your equipment is safe and compliant is challenging, especially
We offer turnkey machine guarding solutions from start to finish.
That’s right, we do it all, (even project management), so machine and process safety no longer have to be daunting or complicated.
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, many things. Click the features below to learn why MPSA is the best turnkey machine guarding provider.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our classes provide an understanding of machine safeguarding challenges and best practices to achieve a safe and compliant solution.
“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.”
Provide a compliant and safe working environment.
