Displacement measurement sensors: Custom quality

The ultimate inspection authority and guarantor of quality for every stage of the process


Within the electronics industry, quality and precision are key factors when it comes to intelligent production concepts: The only way to ensure high levels of quality – from the individual components right through to the end product – is to keep tabs on the value creation process by continuously evaluating measurement results. Optical measurement technology from SICK combines precision and quality in one – by offering measuring instruments that are integrated directly into the production process. In an industry where high measurement accuracy is required in conjunction with short sensing ranges and the tiniest of objects, displacement measurement sensors are really able to show their strengths.

Jam jars: vacuums a necessity


When it comes to metal closures in packaging, nothing can be left to chance: In products such as jam jars, the consumer goods industry requires seals to be tight and jars to be hermetically sealed. Anyone who makes their own jam will know that a small indentation in the lid is the key to creating the perfect vacuum. However, this small feature is difficult to identify by eye in industrial production contexts involving high numbers of parts and high speeds. Continue reading
