Reduction in object spacing

Precise distances between the individual items are paramount for the downstream processes. Minimum spacing between items on a conveyor makes maximum use of the precious space inside a facility. If the gap is too small, this may, for example, adversely affect the auto-ident system. With extremely short response times, SICK reflex light grids are suitable for high conveyor speeds. Polarizing filters suppress negative effects caused by reflecting surfaces.
