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 robotics sensors from SICK, Industrial and collaborative robots perceive more precisely. For all challenges in the field of robotics: Robot Vision, Safe Robotics, End-of-Arm Tooling, and Position Feedback.
Our solutions for your challenges in robotics
Flexible automation solutions thanks to Robot Vision technology and freely accessible robotics applications - this is the future that has already begun. Sensor solutions from SICK make this future possible. Humans and machines work hand in hand - just like SICK together with its customers.
Robot Vision refers to optical and image-based systems that turn the robot into a seeing participant and allow it to identify where something is located. These systems enable flexible automation in the era of Industry 4.0, and can be applied to Bin Picking, Pick and Place and other tailored Robot Vision Systems to address robot automation and guidance.
Industrial Robot Safety solutions help with compliance to ISO 10218 ensuring the safety of people. They include all measures that turn the sensitive area close to the robot into a safe workspace. Open access for safe productivity and robot safeguarding, in one.
In the area of End-of-Arm Tooling, SICK offers sensors that are designed specifically for grippers and robot tools, enabling them to work with fingertip precision.
With Robot Position Feedback solutions from SICK, the motor feedback systems integrated in the drives deliver data on speed and position as well as on the condition of the drive. They thereby create the sensory foundation for all robot movements.
Services and consultation for robotics
Cooperation on equal footing: On the one hand, SICK offers innovative sensor solutions for your robot application. On the other, it also has a comprehensive range of services and consulting, from the initial evaluation to the commissioning of your robot or system. Regardless of whether you approach us as an operator of a collaborative robot (cobot) or as an integrator for industrial robots – together with SICK, you can be sure that your robots will perform their tasks efficiently, safely, and reliably. Take advantage of the many years of experience of the SICK experts, who will be happy to share their knowledge with you and your employees on request.
