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.

Logistics gets smart

Greater efficiency in the entire supply chain

Companies are faced by a great challenge: acting as efficiently as possible. Material flows and intralogistics processes must be optimally coordinated with each other at all times. If there is a problem at one point, this impacts the entire value chain – and thus also competitiveness. Intelligent sensors and networked systems ensure efficient logistics processes as part of Industry 4.0.

Overview

Sensor solutions for the automotive and parts suppliers

As an independent and world-leading developer and manufacturer of intelligent sensor systems, SICK has been shaping the automotive industry for decades. Whether on a large or a small scale, SICK's "Sensor Intelligence“ helps make production safer, faster and more flexible. Hazards and sources of errors (such as the installation of incorrect components) are detected and eliminated. Intelligent safety sensors ensure optimum safety for people and machines. A variety of Auto-ID technologies support the tracing of installed components. This is where SICK uses its comprehensive industry and sensor expertise to produce ideal solutions.

Efficient automobile production with RFID technology

There is a long road to travel between the body shop and the new car’s first outing. Checks are required at many points along the way to ensure that the car is being produced exactly as the customer had intended upon ordering. In the German city of Neckarsulm, Audi is solving this task with the help of an RFID-based identification solution that covers all the types of tasks being carried out at its plant.

Challenges

Safety

Flexible processes and human-robot collaboration (HRC) present special challenges for safety technology in the automotive industry. SICK offers a broad range of safety solution technology here which can be integrated very well into machine and system controls. SICK also supports customers with a comprehensive service package which includes consultation, commissioning assistance, training and education.

Flexible automation

The demand for an increasing number of vehicle types as well as electronic devices and the multitude of individual customer requirements dictate the need for enhanced flexibility and also efficient production. Modern, intelligent sensors from SICK are able to store settings, use automatic teach-in and diagnostic capabilities, and independently evaluate and relay the sensor data in processes. The sensors therefore make a significant contribution towards meeting the requirements of flexible automation.

Quality control

SICK offers the right solution for all quality control applications: Photoelectric proximity sensors for checking that components are present in the assembly process, displacement measurement sensors for precise measurement of components, vision sensors for identifying components and 3D vision systems for high-end testing. All these sensors ensure that the high quality level demanded is achieved.

Track and trace

Reliable identification of objects is a prerequisite for a smooth production flow, and lays the foundations for traceability and continuous quality improvement. SICK offers a wide range of both RFID technology and permanently installed and mobile readers for bar codes and 2D codes. This ensures gap-free traceability throughout the entire production process. Whether 1D, 2D, 3D or RFID – with the 4Dpro, SICK offers uniform connectivity, user interfaces and accessories.
