Reliable object detection

PowerProx: The new home of sensing range

The new standard for reliable detection with an extended sensing range cannot be measured with a conventional yardstick. After all, with sensing ranges from 5 cm to 3.8 m, no object goes undetected by the PowerProx MultiTask photoelectric sensor. To achieve this, not only has SICK packed all the advantages of time-of-flight technology into the world’s smallest housing, we have also increased detection speed. PowerProx set standards, including when it comes to choice and commissioning – not only do they offer the best solution, they always provide the right solution. The four versions “Distance”, “Speed”, “Precision”, and “Small” are designed for different detection tasks. Continue reading

Now made possible: automatic aggregation of pharma packages


With the CPS modular machine concept, the pharmaceutical product division of Bosch Packaging Technology offers intelligent complete solutions for packaging, serializing, aggregation, and the provision of tamper-evident authenticity protection for pharmaceuticals. In the process of combining packages in track-and-trace containers, SICK’s DeltaPac MultiTask photoelectric sensor can be relied upon to accurately count units without any interruptions to the product flow. Moreover, where automatic aggregation is concerned, it makes all the difference. Continue reading

Reliable in series: WTB12-3 in top loading machine solutions of Schubert


Thanks to their consistently modular machine concept, the top-loading machines produced by Schubert in Crailsheim, Germany, are among the most flexible solutions of their type. Despite the functions are so versatile, Schubert is able to solve 90% of all detection tasks with just three of SICK’s sensor ranges, including the specially for Schubert modified WTB12-3 proximity sensor with integrated self-monitoring.
