Robots and robotic devices -- Safety requirements for industrial robots -- Part 2: Robot systems and integration
ISO 10218-2:2011 specifies safety requirements for the integration of industrial robots and industrial robot systems as defined in ISO 10218-1, and industrial robot cell(s). The integration includes the following:
- the design, manufacturing, installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the industrial robot system or cell;
- necessary information for the design, manufacturing, installation, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of the industrial robot system or cell;
- component devices of the industrial robot system or cell.
ISO 10218-2:2011 describes the basic hazards and hazardous situations identified with these systems, and provides requirements to eliminate or adequately reduce the risks associated with these hazards. ISO 10218-2:2011 also specifies requirements for the industrial robot system as part of an integrated manufacturing system. ISO 10218-2:2011 does not deal specifically with hazards associated with processes (e.g. laser radiation, ejected chips, welding smoke). Other standards can be applicable to these process hazards.
