SICK’s goal is to help their clients achieve their goals: high production rates, short processing times, safe environments and consistent high quality. They design and manufacture cost-effective products to achieve a high level of precision, reliability and versatility.

SICK is a leading manufacturer of factory and process automation technology worldwide. With more than 450 patents for photoelectric sensors, safety solutions, machine vision, and bar code scanners, SICK continues to lead the industry in new product innovations. The diversity of its product line allows SICK to offer solutions at every phase of production in the automotive, packaging, electronics, food and beverage, consumer goods, logistics, parcel/postal, and material handling industries.

SICK Industrial Sensors reliably sort, count, inspect, measure, recognize and verify the position, size and overall shape of objects. Contrast sensors recognize differences in material brightness and color. Luminescence sensors recognize fluorescent markings, labels, threads, lubricants and adhesives. Color sensors identify and differentiate objects by color.

Since SICK’s inception, they have led the world in opto-electronic Safety Solutions for hazardous machines and work areas. SICK continues to develop innovative point-of-operation devices, optical perimeter and area guards. Advanced functions of their safety control devices include fixed, floating, and multiple point floating blanking, Presence Sensing Device Initiation (PSDI) and multiple configurable muting controls.

SICK’s Laser Measurement System Sensors are non-contact measuring systems that scan two-dimensionally, with no additional reflectors or markers required. These devices are ideal for determining the volume of objects or bulk materials, collision prevention for AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles), determining and monitoring the position of objects, sorting and classifying, and for positioning control. Laser Measurement Systems are powerful and versatile tools; they are available in both inside- and outside-use models.

With an innovative line of bar code line scanners, omni scanners, vision-based reading systems, integration software, and dimensioning products, SICK offers the industry’s broadest range of solutions for automatic identification applications. And, they have more than 50 years of application experience and a full-service support organization with 24/7 telephone assistance to meet the emerging needs of customers. High-performance, flexibility and simplicity are the hallmarks of SICK’s bar code scanners and systems.
