Safe material flow: seamless safety with automated material transport

Highly automated production plants are characterized by a continuous material flow between individual manufacturing processes. Intelligent safety solutions are a key factor here. By differentiating between humans and material, they secure access to machines and plants, thus protecting personnel and at the same time ensuring smooth material transport.

Choosing the right safety solution is crucial for high productivity. That is why you should rely on SICK, an expert in functional safety. The comprehensive portfolio ranges from safety light curtains with muting function to clever, TÜV-certified safety systems and needs-based services. SICK can offer you customer-oriented solutions for the safe and efficient flow of materials in your systems.
