Video: Sensor Solutions For The Packaging Industry
The Interpack packaging trade fair covers the entire value chain of the packaging industry and will take place in Düsseldorf from May 4th to 10th, 2017. At the fair, the sensor manufacturer Sick will be presenting a wide range of sensors for the consumer goods industry. The company shows its products, systems and services from compact, easy-to-integrate devices to configurable stand-alone solutions to programmable high-speed cameras. In addition to individual components, the sensor manufacturer offers a broad technology portfolio with solutions for individual customer requirements.
Quality control ensures high productivity
The focus of the trade fair appearance this year is on the subject of quality assurance. The high throughput speeds and cycle times of the systems and machines in the packaging industry enable high productivity, but this can only be achieved if complete quality control can be ensured. Sick shows new solutions, consisting of its own modules and integrable functions from image processing libraries, which should offer intelligent support in the areas of quality control, traceability, object data acquisition and predictive maintenance.
For example, the 3D inspection recognizes faulty product features, incomplete packaging units or inadequate labeling. With the data and measured values that vision sensors generate and their integration in real-time fieldbus environments, they provide information that can be used in the smart factory. According to the company, they offer the necessary ability to recognize, measure, assess and communicate in an intelligent way and thus enable future-proof process and quality controls in the environment of Industry 4.0.
