Conception of safety solutions - tec.nicum Engineering

We can provide expertise for every life-cycle phase of machine and plant construction, involved in the design of new machinery and process, and the retrofitting of safety functions during the modernization of older machines. We also perform stop time measurements to calculate safety distances for various guarding systems and carry out the validation of safety functions and provide necessary documentation.


Services offered:
  • Stop Time Analysis

    Our engineers test the stoppage time on the machine to reach a complete standstill. It is a crucial measurement to determine correct minimum safe distance for placing non-separating guards, like Safety Light Curtains.

  • Pressure and Force Limit Analysis

    One method of safeguarding a collaborative robots is to limit the permissible force and pressure in its movement. Our Engineering Services group can perform the necessary measurements tests according to ISO/TS 15066.

Technical project planning

One of the most important phases in the modification of a machine or production line is engineering prior to the conversion work. This lays the foundations for the quality of subsequent implementation. The aim is to develop technical safety solutions for machines and systems. 

tec.nicum defines the necessary safety elements and investigates the PL, SIL and PFHd values required. At the same time, the tec.nicum engineer can show you the best way to implement the modification.

Validation of safety functions to ISO 13849-2

Based on ISO 13849-2, tec.nicum produces all the documents (validation plan, error lists, calculations, etc.) and carries out the validation of safety functions by means of analysis and testing.

tec.nicum checks circuit diagrams for electrical, pneumatic and hydraulic systems and calculates the performance level (PL) and  PFHd for each safety function.


Besides stop time and pressure and force limit tests, tec.nicum engineers can perform other technical measurements, such as electromagnetic capability (EMC) in accordance with the EU EMC Directive.
