Multimillion-dollar damage that occurs during aircraft ground handling leads to high insurance payouts every year. As a result, ground handling services are encumbered with higher insurance premiums. In order to avoid damage, Lufthansa LEOS GmbH relies on SICK’s experience in laser scanners when tugging aircrafts and is putting the APS driver assistance system from SICK to the test for its aircraft tractor fleet.
Confined spaces, tiny objects, and tailored component designs – these are some of the challenges faced when producing electronic components and devices. Intelligent solutions from SICK are exactly the right combination of fiber-optic sensors and fibers – for flexible and reliable object detection that can cope with the smallest nook and cranny.
Where most of the contrast sensors reach their limits, the KTS and KTX offer more applications, more areas of use, more flexibility. They incorporate more than just the reliability and availability of contrast sensors from the market and technology leader: TwinEye-Technology®, multifunctional display, integrated job memory and the combination of contrast and color sensor technology.
Within the electronics industry, the optimization of products and processes is vital to creating the intelligent solutions of the future. End products are entering new dimensions in terms of their performance capabilities – by becoming smaller, flatter, and lighter. Automation solutions are becoming leaner so that their optimization potential can be fully tapped from a quality assurance and cost perspective. As industrial applications become more complex, detection requirements are increasing. But SICK has the answer: the right technology for any challenge – all in an ultra-compact housing.
The Gropper dairy has been a partner of customers and suppliers alike for more than 80 years. The dairy has become the specialist for brands and now supplies almost every national as well as international trading company. The milk processing is a challenge for the sensor technology. Because of this, the company relies on the level sensor LFP from SICK.
