Improve Machine Guarding Without Investing in a Complete Redesign

But if the problem is larger than one off-the-shelf product can fix, in lieu of a complete redesign for that area of your facility, it's often tempting to have your team spin up a customized machine guarding solution and figure out a way to make it work.

But as with most quick fixes, in the long run it's best to get something done correctly from the get-go. Now, that doesn't have to mean complete redesign, but you should create a solution that's meant for asset protection, not one that's pieced together.
