Safety Laser Scanner Market- Introduction

The safety laser scanner is an electro-sensitive protective device which scans its surrounding two-dimensionally using infrared laser beam. Safety laser scanners can be mounted horizontally or vertically and can cover various types of hazards. It also prevents hazards from operating if unintended person or object is in dangerous area. Safety laser scanners have become common and mostly used in area protection and denying access.

A safety laser scanner can be easily customized and can accommodate any area by detecting and accessing presence of objects. Today, safety laser scanners are also being used in automatic guided vehicles, other areas of application include detecting stable and moving objects, ensuring safety of machines in industries, and for mobile applications. Increased automation and fatalities in workplaces is driving the adoption of safety laser scanners. Wide applications across industries resulted in safety laser scanner market to surpass US$300 million in 2018.
