Intelligent sensor technology of the future - SICK at SPS IPC Drives 2015

Sep 15, 2015

Waldkirch, September 2015 – The safety technology of the future and solutions for vision and identification tasks are the focus of SICK AG's presentation at the SPS IPC Drives trade fair in Nuremberg which will be taking place on November 24–26, 2015. SICK will be using this event to gather information about current trends and as an opportunity to present its products and technical innovations. The leading manufacturer of intelligent sensors and sensor solutions will also be demonstrating its wide range of solutions for the many industrial applications.


On the subject of “Industrial Security Systems”, SICK will be presenting the safety technology of the future. In the future, SICK safety sensors will be even more closely connected to one another. The challenges of the future include a rapid commissioning for significantly faster system effectivity and continuous production for increased system efficiency. In the future, SICK's smart sensors in the context of Industry 4.0 will not only be used to ensure the safety of people, but also the implementation of ever-increasing production specifications. 

More than a vision
SICK will also be using the trade fair as an opportunity to show itself as a pioneer for vision and identification applications and will be presenting its wide range of solutions that do more than “just” see. These solutions are already prepared for the requirements of Industry 4.0: They visualize process data and use it to create continuous process optimization using global data transparency, which facilitates industry-wide networked communication. 
At the SPS IPC Drives trade fair, SICK will be demonstrating what is already possible and getting Industry 4.0 off the ground. The innovative solutions face up to the requirements and trends associated with Industry 4.0: Flexibility for custom batch sizes, seamless transparency for traceability, and increased performance for shorter processing times.
