Sensors showcase

14 August 2015

Delivering innovative sensing technologies that support a safer food chain will be the focus of SICK’s solutions for hygienic environments, quality inspection and product traceability showcased at the PPMA Show in 2015.

SICK’s packaging and processing product specialists will be on stand no: E60 to advise visitors how to find the best solutions from its wide portfolio. 

SICK believes it is the first company worldwide to launch advanced ‘Smart Sensors’ across its product ranges providing applications developed to food processing and packaging needs. SICK has built advanced intelligence into IO-link enabled sensors and achieved powerful new on-board processing capability for photoelectric, magnetic and proximity applications. As a result machine technologies and automation on high-speed production lines can be optimised, taking full advantage of Industry 4.0 factory-wide communications.

SICK’s newly launched PAC50 will also be a star attraction at the PPMA Show. The PAC50 is a specially-developed pneumatic pressure sensor for improved air pressure monitoring with an at-a-glance display to provide clear warnings of crossing pressure thresholds within a target range.

The new SICK TriSpector 3D inspection system will take its place alongside leading SICK product brands Inspector, Lector and LMS series to demonstrate SICK’s complete solutions for image processing to support full speed quality assessment of products, packaging and labelling. 


Visitors will also be able to see the comprehensive family of SICK safety products meets all relevant machinery safety standards without compromising productivity.  They include sensors, light curtains, scanners and the modular Flexisoft PLC safety controller system.
