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

Achieving more with intelligent sensors

The demands in the printing industry are diverse and exacting. Fast, safe and efficient production processes are indispensable for high productivity in the prepress, press and postpress fields. SICK offers a variety of perfected products and complete system solutions to achieve optimized production results. As the worldwide leading developer and manufacturer of intelligent sensor technology, SICK has extensive, expert knowledge from many years of experience in factory, logistics and process automation. For optimized processes along the added-value chain in the printing industry, partner with SICK.

Trends & News

Paper per running meter: RFID ensures an accurate production sequence

It is clearly evident that digitalization has left its mark on the paper industry. Does the “print media” face an uncertain future or will haptic page turning hold its own? – both theories have their proponents. The digital age has long been a reality in paper production. The company Kabel Premium Pulp & Paper and its paper mill in Hagen (Westphalia) are impressive proof of this. Showing no sign of dark clouds on the “print horizon”, workers manufacture roll upon roll of high-quality paper around the clock.

Printing: At high speeds and collision-free

Greater cost-effectiveness through increased productivity – swissQprint is setting a new benchmark with its new Nyala 2 large-format printer. This is also made possible by the machine's smart safety concept, into which SICK's miniTwin2 safety light curtains are integrated, guaranteeing collision-free operation of the print head cartridge.

Challenges

Safety

Access and hazardous point protection plays an important role when delivering material to the pre-press area and moving it on to the post-press area. In the area of the machine, the protective devices not only safeguard the hazardous points at punches, cutters or roll changers - they also optimize the production process. SICK's wide product portfolio provides mature solutions for all requirements.

Quality control

SICK offers the matching solution for all quality control applications: fast, precise sensors from SICK produce first-class printing quality. Cameras monitor a print image or punched contours, prevent production of incorrect sheets and check the safety features. Contrast and luminescence sensors evaluate the adhesive coating for gluing and binding machines.

Track and trace

Supply parts, such as rolls or stacks of paper, are identified without omissions and introduced to the production process. After checking the delivery, proof of shipment is archived. Paper handling machines come equipped with code reading systems to ensure Track & Trace functionality for mass mailings and letters. SICK offers ideal solutions for the entire process.

Flexible automation

"Print on demand“ is the latest trend. The demand for special, smaller volumes with shorter delivery times is increasing rapidly. For production, this entails shorter conversion times, simple operation, less downtime and a high diagnostic capability with minimum material waste. Modern, intelligent sensors from SICK are able to store settings and feature automated teach-in and diagnostic capabilities, making a significant contribution towards meeting these challenges.
