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
