Safe robotics: Free access and flexible integration


To achieve a significant boost in productivity using robots, smart safety solutions are essential. We support you with your robot applications to ensure successful human-robot interaction. Thanks to our close collaborative relationship with a number of robot manufacturers, we have the perfect, cost-efficient safety solution for your plant.

Robots support many of our customers in production where they assume a wide variety of tasks. The economic advantages of robots can only be fully realized, however, if the application is freely accessible, employees can move about freely, and the robot appropriately adjusts its speed and movement sequences.

Take advantage of our global experience with a broad range of robot applications, and trust in our innovative safety systems.

Automated material supply in industrial production

Seldom has a gap filler been so innovative: The Magazino robotics company developed the new SOTO, a supply chain robot for those in-between areas of production that have not been automated until now. Together with SICK, a mobile robot was designed for the assembly of production lines. This revolutionary little worker is sure to take off in automotive construction and many other industries.

A balanced solution: optimized loading and transport by autonomous mobile robots

The automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) from Steering Machines significantly increase productivity in industrial environments – thanks to the help of SICK sensor solutions. The alliance between both companies has provided a rugged and safe solution for the production chain of Comexi, a multinational company dedicated to the manufacturing and marketing of capital goods for the flexible packaging printing and converting industry.

Safety and more – a fully automated and autonomous robot solution at KUKA

KUKA is relying on its long-standing partnership with SICK, whose safety solutions provide both a protective function and navigational support in the KMR iiwa. This enables the worker to interact directly with the robot, which moves autonomously. No physical guards are required, making this system genuinely true to the spirit of creating sustainable flexibility in production.
