Certification of the eQart® concept has been completed with positive results
The independent certification body SGS has evaluated the eQart® concept regarding the standards necessary for the European and North American market.
The certification refers to compliance with both product, machine, and safety directives as follows:
Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC Annex I, EN ISO 12100:2010, EN 1525, EN ISO 13849-1:2015, EN 60204-1:2006+A1:2009, EN 1175-1-1998+A1-2010, ANSI C63.4, 47 CFR PART 15B
The certification refers to the modular concept eQart®, and not a specific size.

The certification covers eQart® sizes from 840 x 840 mm, up to 2520 x 2520 mm.
CTO Per Augustsson comments, "This is very satisfying and an important milestone in the transformation from being a mechanical company to becoming a digital player with electrified and self-driving products. We started the journey two years ago, and now we have our first product ready to offer the market. This is just the beginning of a series of innovative products and services within the framework of the FlexQube 4.0 project".
SGS, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, is a world leader in product verification, testing, and certification. The company has more than 97,000 employees and 2,600 offices and laboratories located worldwide.
