Safety Signs on Industrial Robots and Control Cabinets

  1. Understanding Safety Signs and Operating Instructions

Safety signs are indicators set up for safety purposes to reduce hazards. When performing maintenance and repairs on industrial robots in our daily routines, it's essential to have sufficient safety awareness and strictly adhere to safety operating procedures during inspections.

 

  1. Safety Signs on Industrial Robots and Control Cabinets

Caution

Danger

Failure to follow instructions may result in accidents causing severe

or fatal injuries and/or significant product damage.

This sign applies to the following hazards:

contact with high-voltage electrical devices, explosions,

fires, toxic gases, crushing, impact, and falls from heights.

Warning

Warning

Failure to follow instructions may lead to accidents causing severe

(possibly fatal) injuries and/or significant product damage.

This sign applies to the following hazards:

contact with high-voltage electrical units, explosions, fires,

inhalation of toxic gases, crushing, impact, falling from heights, etc.

Electric Shock

Electric Shock

Warning for electrical hazards that

may cause severe personal injury or death.

Be Careful

Be Careful

Failure to follow instructions may result

in accidents causing injury or product damage.

This sign applies to hazards such as burns, eye injuries, 

skin injuries, hearing damage, crushing, slipping,

falling, impact, falling from heights, etc.

Additionally, it applies to certain warning messages related to

functional requirements, indicating situations during equipment

assembly and removal that may damage or cause product failure.

ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD)

ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD)

Warning for electrical hazards that

may cause severe product damage.

Electric Shock

Electric Shock

Describes important facts and conditions.

Tips

 Tips

Describes where to find additional information or

how to operate in a simpler way.

Prohibit

Prohibit

To be used in combination with other signs. 

This sign represents a specificmeaning only

when used in combination with other signs.

Please read the user manual for detailed information.

See User Documentation

See User Documentation

Refer to the product manual before disassembling.

Risk of Tipping

 Risk of Tipping

The rotation range (workspace) of

this axis exceeds the standard range.

Typically used for expanding the axis 1 rotation range

of large industrial robots (e.g., IRB6700).

Brake Release

Brake Release

Pressing this button will release the brake, 

indicating potential robotdropping.

Pay attention, especially when releasing axis 2, axis 3,

and axis5, as the corresponding axis of the robot

may move downward due togravity without control.

Spin Bigger

Spin Bigger

If the bolts used to fix the robot base are not securely fastened

to the ground, it may cause the robot to tip over.

Therefore, secure the robot and

regularly check the tightness of the bolts.

Be Careful to be Squeezed

Be Careful to be Squeezed

There is a risk of crushing injuries at this sign.

Please be extremely careful.

High Temperature

High Temperature

Due to long-term high-load operation,

there is a risk of burns on the surface of the component.

Robot Movement

Robot Movement

The robot may move unexpectedly.
