Stone, ceramic, glass
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.
