Logistics gets smart

Greater efficiency in the entire supply chain

Companies are faced by a great challenge: acting as efficiently as possible. Material flows and intralogistics processes must be optimally coordinated with each other at all times. If there is a problem at one point, this impacts the entire value chain – and thus also competitiveness. Intelligent sensors and networked systems ensure efficient logistics processes as part of Industry 4.0.

Sensor solutions for robotics

Humans and robots are working more closely together. Sensors help robots make more intelligent decisions and give them the ability to sense objects, the environment, or their own position. Thanks to sensors from SICK, robots perceive more precisely - the prerequisite for close collaboration. For all challenges in the field of robotics: Robot Vision, Safe Robotics, End-of-Arm Tooling, and Position Feedback.

Overview

Flexibility and efficiency – the competitive advantage in storage and conveyor systems

Storage and conveyor systems play a central role in intralogistics. This industry demands maximum throughput and optimum use of storage space. Highly dynamic markets, innovative logistics processes and variable materials to be handled place high demands on flexibility. Sensor technology is a key factor. SICK offers not only a complete sensor and service portfolio, but also has extensive industry knowledge, a total package with critical added value for the success of your storage and conveyor system.

Trends & News

Monitoring and evaluating data to make the right decisions

In high-volume distribution centers, sensors record and communicate large quantities of logistics data every day. The real challenge, however, lies in compiling and interpreting that data. SICK”s Package Analytics software aggregates this data to help you visualize all SICK sensor data so you can make timely and informed decisions for your logistics operations.

Complete sensor solutions for AGC systems in CEP distribution centers

Industry 4.0 – and the associated demand for tailored and flexible intralogistics solutions – is increasingly being implemented in the courier, express, parcel, and postal sector (CEP). Automated Guided Carts (AGC) and tugger trains prove to be efficient add-ons and alternatives to traditional material flow and sorter systems. SICK offers a modular eco-system for AGCs – with sensor solutions that make autonomous vehicles safe, and efficient tools for enhanced intralogistical productivity.

Challenges

Detecting

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

Identification

The automated identification of products is a key task in storage and conveyor applications. SICK has not only mastered all the main technologies in the field of automated identification but also poses the right questions to ensure the right products for the task are selected from its technology portfolio (RFID, laser-based bar code scanners, and image-based code readers).

Positioning

The sensors from SICK ensure maximum positioning accuracy, repeatability as well as speed, and therefore optimal PSDI times. Its comprehensive portfolio of distance sensors, encoders and vision sensors allow optimal adaptation to the requirements of the respective application.

Measurement

Light grids, LiDAR sensors, and camera systems as well as scales measure distances, overhangs, dimension profiles, packing volumes, and object weights. The information provided by these devices increases efficiency and process reliability, even for critical storage and conveying tasks.

Protection

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 throughput.

Tailored solutions

SICK has a comprehensive and innovative technology portfolio. Based on this, SICK develops tailored sensor solutions for manufacturers of storage and conveyor systems. The portfolio ranges from standard sensors right through to complex sensor-system solutions. SICK would be happy to provide you with more information on this.
