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.

Overview

Sensor solutions for the stone, ceramic and glass industry

Products made from stone, ceramic, and glass are important building materials and form part of our everyday lives; for example, in the form of ceramic bricks, tiles, washbasins, toilets; kitchen worktops, floor and wall tiles made from marble or granite, and as insulating glass, safety glass, or laminated glass. Tools such as cutting machines, molding presses, or surface grinding and polishing machines are used to manufacture these products, sometimes in combination with a huge range of conveyor systems and robots in fully automated production plants. Sensors used in these facilities need to ensure smooth production processes and maximum efficiency, cost-effectiveness, quality, and safety, sometimes under tough ambient conditions (dust, heat, coolant, lubricant). SICK fulfills these requirements with its industry and sensor expertise.

Challenges

Emission measurement

Glass manufacturing is an energy-intensive process involving high temperatures. It emits nitrogen oxides (NOX), sulfur dioxides (SO2), and carbon dioxide (CO2), which must be continuously monitored. The analytical measuring techniques used by SICK deliver all the necessary information, which is sent to a data acquisition system for further processing if required.

Safety

Safe machines ensure high productivity. SICK offers the widest portfolio of safety solutions: marked by a high degree of integration in its controls and accompanied by an extensive range of services that includes consulting, commissioning, training and additional education.

Quality control

SICK offers the right solution for all quality control applications: displacement sensors for precisely measuring the thickness of glass panel, laser volume flow sensors for ensuring materials are transported correctly, vision sensors for in-line quality control, and smart camera systems for high-end testing. This ensures that the required quality is achieved.

Service

SICK is a one-stop shop for a complete range of services – expert advice, skilled planning services, detailed project planning and engineering, installation, and commissioning. We also provide reliable post-sales maintenance and repair support.
