Main challenges


Identification of codes and objects of all types is the basic requirement for automatic storage, picking and sorting.
SICK offers scalable systems for all code types and for all ID technologies (laser, camera, RFID, hybrid) that are easy to adapt to the respective requirements.


Light grids, camera systems, laser measurement systems and scales measure distance, overhangs, profiles, volumes and weights. They allow efficient sorting, packing and picking, as well as process reliability through qualification.


Solutions for detection of leading edges, occupancy, overhangs, end positions, fill levels, etc. make processes very stable at maximum performance. Throughput maximization depends on optimal precision tuning of all sensor functions. And SICK has the right sensor for every task.

Detecting position

Sensors from SICK ensure maximum positioning accuracy, reproducibility, speed and optimal cycle times. Its comprehensive
portfolio of distance sensors, encoders and vision sensors allow optimal adaptation to the requirements of the respective application.


In the area of safety, sensors, systems, solutions and services from SICK ensure that safety requirements are met in compliance with applicable laws and standards. They provide efficient protection of hazardous areas, safe, ergonomic work stations and maximum system
