When you need your floor space for other machinery.

When you have to move your robot cell to different locations from time to time, and you want all your safety equipment on the robot.

With laser scanners there are two main issues:
a) Required space. The laser scanner needs to look far enough in order to react in time and stop the robot whenever someone walks into the safety barrier. In addition, the length of the arms of a human have to be added around the production cell, so no one can reach into the robot work-zone.
b) Cycle time. Every time someone passes by and enters the scanner area, the robot is stopped, causing the cycle time to increase.
