Product detection in a hygienic environment
Typical tasks for monitoring and controlling the flow of products in packaging machines are the counting of objects or the resolution of a downstream camera. With SICK sensors, this is easy even in environments with demanding hygiene requirements. The GR18 Inox photoelectric proximity sensor with cylindrical stainless-steel housing is particularly suitable for these tasks and can be integrated into the machine easily.
