Opto-electronic sensors for detection of transparent objects

Detecting with ‘(through)sight’ – automating with foresight

CollageTeaser

Transparent plastic packaging, bottles made of glass or PET, ampoules, pipettes, flat, tubular, and hollow glass, films for securing loads on pallets: In many manufacturing processes, automators must cope with transparent objects. In order that these objects are detected reliably, SICK has developed a special sensor portfolio for factory automation. It excels due to outstanding optical performance, intelligence in terms of evaluation technology, and automation-related flexibility. When detecting transparent objects, use of this portfolio allows solving varied tasks reliably and efficiently. Continue reading

Building safety and security: Effective solutions for protecting buildings, property, and material assets

Gebäudesicherheit

When public and industrial buildings or private houses need to be secured against intrusions, jailbreak, theft, vandalism or terrorism, structural measures or protection by security guards often has its limits. Making additional use of electric or electronic protective devices is, therefore, a sensible idea. SICK provides a  diverse range of effective solutions for protecting buildings, property, and  material assets. Continue reading
