What It Is
We design, integrate, and build a customized safety system so you can meet OSHA and regulatory compliance for robotic finishing in Class I Div 1 & 2 hazardous locations in order to have robotic automation in your facility.
Why You Need
To meet regulatory requirements so you will never be shut down by electrical inspectors or OSHA audits while also keeping your team safe.
How It Works
We are the only NRTL certified facility in North America for self-learning robots. We work with you to ensure your system’s safety fencing, interlocks, pressure mats, light barriers, automatic doors, and more are present and functioning as required at your site. After installation your system will have our NRTL certified nameplates on each of your robots for Class I Div 1 & 2 hazardous locations.
Safety for robots and Class l Div 1 Hazardous Environments is something that needs to be taken very seriously to protect your people and your investment.
There’s one thing for certain: Regulations in manufacturing are changing with new technology, especially as it relates to the certification of equipment and machinery.
DeGeest has navigated these challenges and now makes it their mission to provide finishing solutions to help North American manufacturers stay competitive.
Derek DeGeest, President of DeGeest Corporation and LestaUSA, knows when the industry comes together to help each other, successful integration of robotics and automation into operations follows. After being on both sides of the coin of installing a large finishing system and shepherding in new self-learning robotic technology to North America, it’s important to share the combined experiences of DeGeest Corp and LestaUSA to help manufacturing grow.
Derek DeGeest, President of DeGeest Corporation and LestaUSA, successfully brought self-learning robotics to their finishing operation, but it was no small feat. Navigating U.S. manufacturing hazardous location regulations' dicey waters with this new technology wasn’t easy, but DeGeest accomplished it and is now creating certified solutions for other manufacturers.
