Working together as equals

Sensor solutions for robotics

Humans and robots are working more closely together. Sensors help robots make more intelligent decisions and give them the ability to sense objects, the environment, or their own position. Thanks to sensors from SICK, robots perceive more precisely - the prerequisite for close collaboration. For all challenges in the field of robotics: Robot Vision, Safe Robotics, End-of-Arm Tooling, and Position Feedback.

Smart Motor Sensors

Get to the heart of things with insider information from Smart Motor Sensors

With its Smart Motor Sensors, SICK provides information directly from the center of production. This is information about the status of machines and servomotors that helps to detect malfunctions earlier, solve them more quickly or to avoid them entirely. SICK has once again applied its entire knowledge base to allow customers this insight and to therefore facilitate predictive maintenance procedures.

Overview

Achieving more with intelligent sensors

The packaging industry requires sensors and sensor systems that are tailored to complex, frequently changing tasks, while meeting the increasingly challenging standards for trademark protection, safety, and documentability.

From the rugged, moisture-proof photoelectric sensor, glass identification via intelligent image sensors, and checking the position of packaging elements through to protecting robotic loaders with safety laser scanners – SICK sensors and systems meet the requirements of the packaging industry.

Trends & news

Permanent control of continuous webs - so nothing goes wrong

In the consumer goods industry, especially in printing and packaging, the processing of continuous webs is a real challenge. Exact guidance of the material web, correct material tension in the machine and cutting the web at the right spot at the end are all essential for efficient and precise process results. SICK solutions help with every one of these process steps – for example with registration sensors or automation light grids which were made for such tasks.

Label Checker quality control system checks for the presence of the use-by-date

Quality control is becoming ever more important. In the food industry, guaranteeing use-by-dates, in particular, is of the utmost importance to manufacturers – as demonstrated time and time again by media reports on food scandals. That is why the German organic food producer Midsona Germany chose the Label Checker from SICK.

3D localization with the Belt Pick SensorApp for pick-and-place tasks

The ability to ensure hygienic primary packaging of sensitive open food is incredibly important within the food industry. This is why SICK is working with the robot manufacturer Stäubli to make this process possible within a robot cell. The TriSpectorP1000 3D vision sensor from SICK and the four axis FAST picker TP80 HE from Stäubli solve picking processes while the conveyor belt is in motion. 3D parts localization is implemented by the Belt Pick SensorApp and SICK AppSpace.

Challenges

Flexible Automation – Detecting and Measuring

Differently sized products and individual customer requirements require flexible machines and a broad spectrum of intelligent sensors to detect objects and measure physical sizes. SICK's smart sensors feature automated teach-in and diagnostic capabilities, and make a significant contribution towards meeting these challenges. Predictive maintenance reduces downtimes. Smart Tasks provide process efficiency with the right information at the right time, directly from the sensor. This makes Industry 4.0 a reality.

Safety – Ensured

The modular construction of modern packaging machines and plants requires an intelligent and flexible safety concept. SICK safety solutions ensure the protection of personnel and machines, optimize production and reduce machine footprint requirements. Our central task is to develop and offer safety technology services which are standardized all over the world. These include commissioning, repair and modernization. As an accredited inspection center, SICK offers the inspection of protective measures worldwide in accordance with valid standards and regulations.

Quality Control – Monitoring and Controlling

In all areas of the packaging industry – whether it is pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food and beverages, household goods, or hygiene – reliable quality is one of the key corporate targets. In order to ensure constant high quality with high throughput speeds on packaging machines, a quality control system is needed that meets the highest requirements. Whether it is standard sensor technology, complete systems or services, SICK offers state-of-the-art intelligent sensor solutions for all areas of the packaging industry. After all, quality is never an accident.

Track and Trace – Identification and Tracking

Reliable identification of objects is the foundation for traceability with serialization and aggregation and for continual quality improvement. In addition, complete system solutions are required for inventory management and reusability of returnable containers and packaging. To do so, SICK offers intelligent sensor solutions, ranging from compact devices that are easy to integrate, through configurable standalone solutions, and right the way up to programmable high-speed cameras. SICK calls on various technologies to ensure its integrated and mobile read devices can detect bar codes, 2D codes, and RFID.
